I have stage 3 endometrosis and recently I have experienced more pain. The doctors have asked me to consider surgery. This month I joined my company's private medical insurance scheme. The scheme has a clause that says that if you have a flair up of a medical condition you may be able to get private cover. Given the increased pain I have been feeling I would like to make a claim. Can someone tell me if it would be too soon for me to make a claim in April - 1 month after I joined the scheme?
I have suffered with endometriosis for 17 years - but I feel I was let down by the NHS doctors - and was only diagnosed 2 years ago when I went private. I had to pay for the operation myself because I didn't have private medical insurance at the time. After the operation I ran out of money so I went for check-ups on the NHS. However my last appointment in particular left me in tears and highly distressed because I believe the consultant I spoke to did not deal with my situation in a sympathetic and understanding way. This is one of the reasons why I want to try and go private.
Any advice you could give me would be most appreciated.
