Can i get income protection for ulcerative colitis?

If your symptoms are mild and you have not experienced any recent symptoms or flare-ups then it can be simple to get income protection. There are more options when it comes to looking for this type of policy so carefully consider your requirements. People with ulcerative colitis might be offered terms with some elements excluded so read your documents properly.

People suffering from more severe symptoms such as hospitalisation or surgery can get more specialist cover. You may have been refused this type of policy in the past but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t get cover. There are options to make this type of policy more affordable as well so check to see what’s available.

How does ulcerative colitis income protection work?

When applying for income protection, it is highly likely that your application will be evaluated, along with requesting a medical report from your GP. Insurance providers will require a clear picture of your overall health to gauge whether you are eligible for income protection. If your symptoms are low where little medication is required to live with your ulcerative colitis, income protection cover will usually be offered with small additional premiums.

However, if your case is severe, additional premiums and exclusions may be applied to your income protection policy or may be declined.
