Thanks for your question.
I have reviewed some insurer documentation and generally a pulmonary embolism does not fall under a critical illness claim. Conditions defined as critical illness do vary from insurer to insurer and include conditions such as stroke, blindness and kidney failure. To find the exact list you would need to look at your policy documentation. There will be a list of between 35- 50 conditions.
Any medical conditions resulting from the pulmonary embolism may be covered by the policy so you could also check for these.
Frequently Asked Mortgage Protection Insurance Questions
Very happy with the advice I received from Jake Beale at Drewberry on my income protection. All sorted in two short easy phone calls.
Matteo listened carefully to my requirements and came up with an insurance policy that significantly outperformed the best offer I had managed to find in the market. I am impressed by Drewberry and will of course recommend them to many of my friends!
Worked with me to get the right solution and was knowledgable and understanding. Felt like I was in very good hands!
