Sickle Cell & Insurance

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Incidentally my enquiries with the sickle cell society led me to register with this community as I didn't know it existed, great place!!!

I wanted know if anyone knows about any insurance companies out there that can provide people with sickle cell mortgage indemnity insurance (i.e. insurance that covers someone when they take out a mortgage) they are sometimes called decreasing term insurance

There seems to be an unfair access challenge out there for people with long-term conditions to procure insurance generally especially people with sickle cell which is often categorised as a type of anaemia

Generally the insurance companies are ignorant about sickle cell which doesn't help matters.

Has anyone bought a house recently, if yes, are you insured???????

  • Hi there, the only insurance I have at the moment is with metlife and it's for hospital admissions. It pays you for a maximum of 90 days a year. The money covers most financial loss you might aquire during your stay in hospital. Anyone interested in this can contact me on ngohzee@gmail.com to put you in contact with the person that signed me up. I will also check out the Eunisure. Good luck.
