Diabetes and Insurance

Hi Everyone,

In this episode we are chatting about diabetes. We try and keep the inevitable chat over coronavirus to a minimum in these episodes, but it's well and truly everywhere throughout this one. There have been some significant links between coronavirus deaths and diabetes and this has understandably changed the way that insurers are offering cover.

We chat through potential insurance terms for diabetics pre-covid, during lockdown and what we hope will happen post coronavirus.

Our 3 key takeaways,

1. 1 in every 15 people in the UK has diabetes.

2. The importance of self-knowledge and engagement with medical advice, in determining the potential terms of insurance.

3. Case study client that was able to have life insurance and income protection, with a number of medical conditions including type 1 diabetes.

We always love to hear from you, please do let us know your thoughts of the podcast and if you like what we are doing. In the next episode we will have another guest on with us and we will be chatting about insurance and people living with HIV.
