Arthritis is one of the most common medical conditions and we are proud to have helped so many find appropriate travel insurance cover for their medical condition. Our policies are ideal for covering all forms of arthritis, including both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis or if you are recovering from joint replacement surgery. Arthritis is a condition that affects the bones, muscles and joints, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as well as conditions such as back pain or general wear and tear of joints. Arthritis is not just a condition that affects over 50’s, although more than 10 million people live with arthritis in the UK and more than 15,000 of them are children and young adults.
Our specialist travel insurance policy will cover you for emergency medical expenses abroad, even if these relate to your pre-existing arthritis or joint replacements, providing you have declared your condition during your medical screening. We also cover cancellation if your arthritis deteriorates and leaves you unfit to travel abroad, which can unfortunately happen as arthritis and joint pain are the second biggest causes of sick leave from work in the UK.
