What is a Pre-existing Medical Condition?
If you have suffered any physical defect, infirmity, existing or recurring illness, injury or disability of which you are aware or for which you have received medical examination, consultation, treatment, investigation and/or medication in the 12 months prior to the commencement date of the policy this is classed as a Pre-existing medical condition.
Am I Automatically Covered?
It is important to understand that Pre-existing medical conditions may not be covered under your policy. Certain Pre-existing medical conditions are covered automatically within specific criteria for travellers who are insured under the GoComprehensive or GoFreedom policies only. Cover for conditions outside of those listed in section 2 in the policy wording may be available following an online medical assessment. Please note that no cover for Pre-existing medical conditions is available under the GoBudget policy.
