A pre-existing condition is a disease, illness or injury which you have received medication, treatment or advice for; or that you have experienced symptoms before the start of your cover, whether or not you have sought advice from a medical professional.
Private health insurance provides a sense of security and reassurance so businesses can enjoy the benefits of a happier, healthier and more satisfied workforce. Pre-existing conditions are not usually covered by health insurers across the UK, but here at General & Medical, we want to give you the reassurance you need when it comes to the health of your employees or members by offering cover for pre-existing conditions.
If one of your employees or members has a flare-up of their pre-existing conditions then they will be able to undergo the treatment they need quickly, which can even result in a reduction of employee absences, benefiting your business.
You can choose to extend your employees or members cover to include up to two of the pre-defined condition listed below, for an additional premium.
There is an annual limit of £1,000 each year for the above pre-existing conditions. Your employees or members will also receive our rolling benefit, providing cover has been continuous and there have been no claims made relating to the pre-existing condition, each year the annual limit will roll up £1,000 to a maximum of £10,000 after 10 years of cover.
When it comes to your employees or members choosing the right underwriting options, it’s important to consider whether or not some of your pre-existing conditions will be covered later on. We offer a range of underwriting options for you to choose from which includes new underwriting and we can also offer those looking to transfer from an existing scheme continued underwriting options.
