As with most types of Cancer, it is possible to get Hodgkin’s Lymphoma life insurance and it can be anything from standard rates with no special terms up to decline or postpone if there are other issues. There are some key factors which would be taken in to account when applying for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma life insurance and insurance underwriters will generally want to see a copy of your medical records.
Some of the main factors that will be taken in to account by insurance underwriters when considering an application for Hodgkin Lymphoma life insurance are:
- When were you diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma
- What was the grade and stage of the tumour
- What type of treatment did you receive (e.g. Chemotherapy or Radiotherapy)
- How long ago did your treatment end
There are certain circumstances where Hodgkin Lymphoma life insurance may be slightly more difficult to get cover for, such as if you are still receiving treatment or awaiting investigations / results. Generally with any cancer treatment there will be a period of time before you will be eligible for cover purely to ensure that the treatment has worked. Usually if you are within 2 years of receiving primary treatment then Hodgkin Lymphoma life insurance would typically be postponed.
