Will I be covered when receiving dialysis treatment while abroad?

  • Updated

You can obtain cover for trips if you require dialysis treatment while abroad providing the following conditions are met:

  • The treatment is deemed necessary by a medical practitioner as routine treatment of your condition while on holiday.
  • Your condition has been declared and covered on the Policy.
  • You are not going abroad solely for the purpose of receiving dialysis or a form of dialysis unavailable in the UK.
  • You have been declared fit to travel.
  • Your condition in relation to the dialysis has been diagnosed.

Please note the Policy will not cover the cost of planned dialysis and that you should not embark on your trip if not fit to do so. Any changes in health must be communicated to us before departure. You must also confirm with your treating medical specialist that your condition is stable and unlikely to deteriorate before your scheduled trip return date.
