Some handy hints on getting insurance:
- You must telephone the medical pre screening line to ensure that you are covered – failure to do this might result in your insurance being invalid when trying to make a claim.
- They may ask you what the condition is and you will be told that they don’t have P.C.D. on their systems! Don’t panic – just tell them that another name for it is Kartagene’s Syndrome and they will then be able to ask you relevant questions. If you tell them that the treatment is similar to Cystic Fibrosis you will struggle to get cover at a reasonable price.
- Don’t forget to ring the medical screening line again before you travel if circumstances have changed since the time you first got cover
