What is gout?

Gout causes severe pain and swelling in the joints such as elbows, knees, fingers and wrists. It can also affect the big toe. A main symptom of gout is hot, red and swollen skin over the affected area. Other symptoms include a raised temperature and feeling very shivery – this is because gout can cause infections in the joints.

Gout is treated with anti-inflammatory medications such as steroids. Those who are at a greater risk of developing gout include mature women (after the menopause), those who take diuretics (water tablets) for blood pressure, and those with high levels of cholesterol. It can also occur more often in those who are overweight or who drink excessively (especially those who drink large amounts of beer). If gout isn’t treated successfully, it can lead to chronic gout, leading to permanent damage to the joint and affected area.

Finding the right insurer for gout life insurance

Where do you find the right gout life insurance cover for your needs? Depending on your circumstances and when you first experienced gout, some insurers may be reluctant to accept applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for gout life insurance, and need to assess their level of risk.

Generally speaking, being accepted for gout life insurance cover shouldn’t be a problem. The insurer may however wish to see your medical records or speak to your GP to determine the severity of your condition. At iLi, we can make the policy-searching process as simple as possible. Our quick and easy matching process can help you to find the right gout life insurance provider from a panel of the UK’s leading FCA-regulated insurers.

Costs for gout life insurance premiums

Premiums for gout life insurance will depend on the number of flare-ups you have had in the past, when they occurred, and the cause of your gout (i.e. whether it is through family medical history or lifestyle). An insurer will want to know whether you have any lasting symptoms that impact on your health and well-being as a result. It is possible to obtain gout life insurance cover on standard terms, or with a small loading fee applied to your policy. A loading fee is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if you have suffered or continue to suffer from chronic gout that affects your daily life, there is a great chance that you could make a claim to an insurance company in future. An insurer may therefore apply a loading fee to cover this risk.

Prices from insurers will always vary from company to company, which is why iLi’s comparison service is the best way to find a gout life insurance specialist that is FCA-regulated.
