Health Insurance and Congenital Heart Disease



Has anyone had experience in taking out a private health insurance policy in the UK with congenital heart defects?

I was born with a hole in the heart, corrected by surgery back in 2002. It's not currently a risk to my health, but every insurer classifies this as a "pre-existing condition", which is of course not covered by their insurance policy.

I am getting increasingly frustrated with this search, and just wondering whether anyone here has gone through the same process?
