Is cancer excluded from pre-existing coverage?

Last Updated:

Short Answer

Policies including Pre-Existing Condition coverage can cover travelers with cancer, as long as they are stable at the time of purchase. 

More Details

Typically, in order for a traveler with cancer to be eligible for travel insurance, they must be stable when they buy the policy, and must purchase a policy with the Pre-Existing Medical Condition coverage.

In order to meet the requirements for Pre-Existing Condition coverage, the policy must be purchased within 14-21 days of their first booking date. Some providers also require 100% of their prepaid and non-refundable trip costs are insured.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
