We have been providing a specialist HIV-inclusive travel insurance policy for years and our main web site for the policy is at www.hivtravelinsurance.com
As well as providing medical expenses for anything HIV-related, we can also include cover for a wide range of additional pre-existing medical conditions, subject to a medical screening.
These days, HIV is usually not viewed with the same near hysteria that it once used to be.
However, there are many situations where someone doesn't want anyone else to know their HIV status because of the possible consequences that could still spring from prejudice.
Confidentiality, therefore, is important for a great many people who are HIV+.
Uniquely, we think, our policy documents don't mention that you have declared HIV to us as a pre-existing medical condition (it's covered by default because of our special policy wording that similarly doesn't identify you as being positive). Furthermore, the covering letter or e mail we send with your documents mention only It's So Easy Travel Insurance and our main web site www.itssoeasytravelinsurance.com. We don't mention our special HIV site on any documents we send you. However, you can always link to our hivtravelinsurance.com site from this one.
To our knwoledge, on all other travel insurance policies, your HIV would be shown, for everyone to see, as a declared pre-existing medical condition. Unsurprisingly, many people would prefer that noe to be the case.
Other feature of our policy include the fact that we rarely need to ask you for your CD4 count or viral load level. These may be relevant if you don't meet our health warranty because of an HIV-related condition.
We will also meet the costs of obtaining a repeat prescription and medication if your medication is lost or stolen while away. If it's not possible to obtain your medication where you're visiting, we will pay for medication from you UK hospital or doctor to be couriered to you.
We think these are important things to include our policy for you.
