When working through any complex process, getting the timing right is often the key to success.
And that's never more true than for folks using IVF treatments as part of Growing Families.
Everyone's personal situation is different so getting a life insurance policy in place can sometimes be unexpectedly complicated by delays collecting historical health information.
As a result we always recommend applying for cover at least 6 months before the medical procedures for the pregnancy have begun, to allow for assessments and unexpected delays in collecting past medical histories etc.
Some people may have been put off from having a genetic test and missing a diagnosis and possible treatment for serious illnesses, such as cancer, because of concerns the results of the test may exclude them from obtaining insurance cover.
Life insurers are currently banned from requiring applicants for insurance to disclose the results of any genetic tests they may have and this ban will last until June 30th 2024 when it will be reviewed.
Under the duty of disclosure, a person applying for insurance must disclose relevant information to the insurer before a contract is entered into.
A person applying for insurance must:
fully and completely answer all the questions on the proposal form
answer questions asking for detailed information precisely, and
include additional information if a ‘tick the box’ question does not offer an answer that applies to the person’s situation
