Will I be covered for cancer?

When you take out private health insurance, you can opt for cancer cover to be included under your policy.

You will have access to proven eligible cancer drugs and treatments and the latest advances in medical technology when there is good-quality clinical evidence to support it. If a specialist recommends a new drug for your cancer, your insurer will pay for it, as long as it’s licensed by the European Medicines Agency or by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, for your condition and is included on their list of advanced therapies and specialist drugs.
