Wondering if anyone has been able to successfully obtain travel insurance that covers ovarian cancer as a pre-existing condition? I have dreams of travelling (outside Canada!) but it seems I've hit a roadblock with the travel insurance.
I have travel insurance through work, but it does not cover pre-existing conditions (only if something else were to happen, like a broken arm). I went to BCAA, as they have a pre-existing travel condition add-on, but they said it does not cover ovarian cancer. They advised I speak to their affiliate, Tugo Insurance, as they have cancer coverage. However, they only cover cancer if you are in remission and have letter from your doctor (I am not and still have evidence of cancer). I'm also on Tamoxifen, a hormone treatment, which they consider as being under "active treatment".
I know that most likely nothing ovarian cancer related will happen during my travels. However, I'm just nervous that if something were to happen, I wouldn't want to have hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills!
Anyone have any success or advice? Thanks so much!
