Hepatitis is a condition in which the liver becomes infected, causing inflammation. It can occur as a result of a virus, or by drinking too heavily (and resulting alcohol damage to the liver). The illness can however have long-term effects, such as scarring of the liver, losing effective function of the liver, and in extreme cases, cancer of the liver.
Hepatitis A is a liver infection. It is spread through faeces, especially in parts of the world that have poor sanitation. It can also be transmitted through drug use and men who have unprotected sex with other men. Although the symptoms of hepatitis A are unpleasant, most people make a full recovery from the infection within two months. In more severe cases, it can take many months for an infected person to successfully fight the infection, and can be life threatening if it causes damage to the liver.
Symptoms of hepatitis A include fatigue, muscular pain, joint pain, a high temperature, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. Some people also experience stomach pain, jaundice, itchy skin and abnormally coloured faeces or urine.
There are many insurers that offer cover for people with a history of or who are suffering with hepatitis A. Whether or not you are accepted for life insurance will depend on the severity of your condition and how long you have had hepatitis A for. If you have recovered from hepatitis A and your liver is functioning normally, you are likely to be accepted on standard terms or with minimal premium loadings.
With so many insurers and policies to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to find the right life insurance cover for your needs, especially if you have a medical condition like hepatitis A. While many insurers will accept applications for hepatitis A life insurance, some companies may exercise caution when considering an application. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for hepatitis A life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have suffered from severe liver failure as a result of hepatitis A, you may find it more challenging to secure cover from an insurer. With our comparison service, at iLL we can help you find the right insurer for your needs.
If you have suffered from hepatitis A in the past, but have now recovered without complications or liver damage, you might be eligible for life insurance cover at standard rates. This will however depend on the severity of your hepatitis A, and whether or not you contracted hepatitis A through drug use. These factors will determine the level of risk you pose to an insurer. If you have contracted hepatitis A due to drug use and/or have had severe complications with your liver as a result of the condition, you may be offered cover with higher premiums.
You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your condition is severe, you are not taking medications to control your symptoms and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.
