This is a standard process to ensure you are receiving enough protection.
Within this process, providers will request a blood test to measure your ferritin levels, iron levels, and genetic testing for the HFE gene. If your haemochromatosis is well controlled, standard terms may be offered when applying for life insurance. If you have an iron overload where related medical conditions are present, such as liver disease or organ damage, haemochromatosis life insurance cover will be offered with additional premiums.
