Hi Najib,

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.

The process to securing insurance was seamless and everyone involved from Drewberry along the way was very professional. Price options they presented were also competitive compared to my own research. Would definitely recommend them.
