Multiple Sclerosis and Insurance

Hi Everyone!

Things have been incredibly interesting in the insurance world recently (yes, we know, you can count on us to be the life and souls of a party!).

In this episode we are focusing upon multiple sclerosis and how the new world of insurance, is treating applications from people living with the condition. As always Kathryn poses a few challenges to Andrew on why insurers work the way that they do.

From an advisers mind "outside" of an insurer, there are some things that seem like they should be pretty easy changes. Andrew brings his technical knowledge to the chat, to explain why insurers work in the ways that they do, the reasons why some barriers to insurance still remain in place, and also his view on areas where insurers could adapt more.

Our 3 key takeaways:

  1. There are 130,000 people living with MS in the UK.
  2. Some tips for advisers on how to support clients with MS applying for insurance, during the coronavirus pandemic.
  3. Two case study clients living with multiple sclerosis, that were able to access protection insurance.

We hope that you find this episode informative and thought-provoking. We are trying to keep these episodes balanced to show the positives of the insurance world, whilst also not pretending that everything is perfect.

Next time we are focusing on Strokes with a mystery guest.
