Hepatopulmonary Syndrome

  • 14/06/2018  15:49

    Hello, I've joined your Forum and wondered if anyone on here has the same condition as me (above).  I have been trying to find out if I can get medical travel insurance with this condition, but as I think it is classed as a terminal illness, and I am in my 70's, it appears highly unlikely.

    Hope to hear from someone!

    Hi RainbowWarrior66,


    I just need to make you aware that we are not medically trained here at the Support Line so I am unable to tell you whether you condition is deemed to be terminal or not. The best person to ask would be your GP or consultant. 


    We have information on finding travel insurance on our website, you can find it here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/benefits-entitlements/other-financial-matters/travel-insurance.


    If anybody has some personal experience that they can share with RainbowWarrior66 please do comment below.


    If you would like to discuss this with us further  you can get in touch with us on Freephone 0800 090 2309 or via our web chat function here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line


    Best Wishes
