Ankylosing Spondylitis Life Insurance

Anyone who has been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis looking for life insurance will be required to provide certain information about their condition to underwriters for them to be able to accurately assess the application.

Information required for ankylosing spondylitis life insurance:

  • Severity and regularity of symptoms
  • Type of medication and dosage
  • Any treatment and/or surgery
  • Details of any other related or non-related conditions (e.g. Anaemia, Cardiovascular Disease, Arthritis etc.)

Life insurance for ankylosing spondylitis can often be offered and terms can vary from the insurers standard rates with no additional loadings up to high loadings or even decline in more severe cases. Our experience of dealing with ankylosing spondylitis life insurance applications is varied and most insurance providers can be favourable where there is no major surgery and the condition is well controlled.

In most applications we see for ankylosing spondylitis life insurance there has been at least a requirement for underwriters to either view a copy of your medical records or for medical interview to be completed. Insurance providers will want to take a view on your overall state of health as well as the severity of your ankylosing spondylitis to be able to offer you life insurance at the appropriate rate.

If you have applied for ankylosing spondylitis life insurance in the past and been offered cover with special terms imposed or even if you have been declined, then you should contact one of our experts. The Insurance Surgery specialises in pre-existing medical conditions life insurance such as ankylosing spondylitis and other chronic conditions.

 

Ankylosing Spondylitis Critical Illness Cover

Critical illness cover for someone suffering from ankylosing spondylitis will almost always be subject to providing underwriters with access to view your medical records. Some insurers may alternatively request for you to complete a medical screening which are both designed to enable insurers to assess the overall state of your health as well as anything relating to your ankylosing spondylitis.

Fortunately ankylosing spondylitis is one of the pre-existing medical conditions where critical illness cover is available and terms can vary from standard rates with no exclusions in very well controlled cases with no other issues, all the way up to increased premiums with exclusions or even to decline in more severe cases.

Quite often where we are dealing with applications for ankylosing spondylitis critical illness cover we will see at least some loading or premium increase and in some cases there will be exclusions for anything relating to your condition. ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic and progressive condition and therefore underwriters will take this in to account when assessing any application for ankylosing spondylitis critical illness cover.

 

Ankylosing Spondylitis Income Protection

If you have been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and you are looking for income protection, you may find it difficult to get cover from most high street insurance providers. This is due to the increased risks of claim from mobility related issues and other problems which are likely to cause you to require time off from work.

It is possible to get ankylosing spondylitis income protection from some non-high street or specialist insurance providers if the condition is not described as severe and no medication is currently being taken. If you are offered ankylosing spondylitis income protection you may find that there are restrictions imposed such as the length of deferment period which can be offered from 13 weeks or claims relating to your condition.
