I was diagnosed with ET & JAK2+ last month at the age of 29. I joined the forum and had seen that people diagnosed with ET had been paid out on there critical illness policy. I had checked with my husband and he confirmed that we did have a joint policy, so I had decided to put forward a claim. Aviva seem to be 'umming and arring' at the moment on whether to pay! I have seen the form my consultant sent back and the three main questions he was asked:
Exact Diagnosis - to which he put down ET and JAK2+
Is the condition malignant- he ticked yes
Is the condition invasive- he ticked no
From your own experience should Aviva be paying out based on information he has provided?
Also I had read somewhere that the condition is invasive so if anyone could shed some light on whether it is or not.
