Most Common Questions

To process your application we will need to go through a detailed medical questionnaire with you so the insurance providers can assess your individual circumstances. They will want to know full details of your cancer including dates, types, treatment and your state of health now. It is important that you fully and accurately disclose your health information so that your policy is valid if it needs to be claimed on.
If there is a history of any medical problem the insurance providers need to assess the increased risk of making a claim. Our expert team of Cancer Insurance Experts has been helping people like you to get the cover they need for several years so can guide you through the process.

Case Study 1

  • Client: Male
  • Age: 31
  • Smoker status: Non-smoker
  • Medical condition: Testicular cancer
  • Cover date: 23rd September 2019
  • Product type: level life insurance
  • Cover amount: £500,000
  • Cover term: 30 years
  • Premium: £20.30

We were approached by this gentleman on the 5th September 2019 when he completed an enquiry on our website. Our advisor Karl then contacted him to discuss his life insurance needs and any pre-existing medical conditions that he may have. At this point he disclosed that he has had stage 1 testicular cancer 6 years ago, of which he is now clear and isn’t receiving any treatment. The gentleman then went on to explain that he was looking for £500,000 of cover over a 30-year period as well as critical illness cover to cover his mortgage and protect his family. After learning this, Karl then researched the best provider for the gentlemen and applied to one of our mainstream providers. Unfortunately, the quotes for the critical illness cover were a little over the gentleman’s budget and therefore he chose to just have the level life insurance. As a result of this, Karl managed to secure the gentleman £500,000 of cover over a 30-year period for a monthly premium of £20.30.

This is an amazing outcome as the gentleman was able to get the protection that he and his family need for a very reasonable premium, especially due to the amount of cover that they gentleman was looking for and his previous medical history. Both us and the gentleman were delighted with this result as he was able to get the protection that he needs within his budget so he knows that his family are covered should the worst happen.

Case Study 2

  • Client: Male
  • Age: 49
  • Smoker status: Smoker
  • Medical condition: Bowel cancer and depression
  • Cover date: 24th September 2019
  • Product type: Level life insurance
  • Cover amount: £15,000
  • Cover term: 20 years
  • Premium: £35.34

We were contacted by this gentleman on the 28th June 2019 when he completed an enquiry on our website. Our advisor Sam C then called him to discuss his life insurance needs and his pre-existing medical conditions. At this point he disclosed that he was looking for £150,000 of cover over 20 years with a maximum budget of £40pm, and that he has suffered from stage 1 bowel cancer, of which his last treatment was over 2 years ago. He also mentioned that he has suffered from minor depression and has also been advised by a doctor to reduce his alcohol consumption in 2010. Sam C then took all of this information and applied to one of our mainstream providers and got some quotes for the gentleman. However, unfortunately these quotes were too expensive for his budget due to the fact that his bowel cancer was so recent . Therefore, Sam C had to reduce the amount of cover that the gentleman was looking for to £15,000 so that it fit within his budget. Therefore, Sam C managed to find £15,000 of cover for 20 years for the gentleman for a monthly premium of £35.34. This is a brilliant premium considering the difficult combination of medical conditions that they gentleman has suffered from, especially the bowel cancer as that can pose a significant risk to the insurers.

As a whole, the gentleman was over the moon that we managed to find him cover, as he now has peace of mind that his family are financially protected. Furthering this, we are also overjoyed that we managed to find him cover as it can sometimes be tricky to find cover for people who have had cancer, especially if they have other medical conditions as well.

'Simply the best' This company is the top of the insurance business. I found it after having a bad experience with one of the biggest insurers.I thought I would struggle to get insurance. I filled in the enquiry section on there site, and waited for the reply. When it came I was very impressed with the manner in which the information was taken and the speed I got the quote, which was very reasonably priced.I would not hesitate to use this company again and would highly recommend them to family and friends. 4.9
