Hepatitis is a condition in which the liver becomes inflamed. It can occur as a result of a virus (there are five different types of hepatitis virus – A, B, C, D and E), or by excessive drinking and alcohol damage to the liver. Usually, the condition passes in time following treatment. The illness can however have long-term effects, such as scarring of the liver, losing effective function of the liver, and in extreme cases, cancer of the liver.
Symptoms of hepatitis include muscular pain, fever and high temperature, nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, discoloured faeces, stomach cramps, itching skin and jaundice. It can sometimes take a while for a person to realise that they have hepatitis. If hepatitis continues into the long-term, sufferers are likely to experience symptoms associated with liver failure.
Many insurers offer cover for people with hepatitis. This does however depend on the severity of your condition and whether symptoms have passed. If you have recovered from hepatitis with no consequent liver failure or damage, you are likely to be accepted on standard terms.
With so many insurers and policies to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to find the right life insurance cover for your needs, especially if you have a medical condition like hepatitis. While many insurers will accept applications for hepatitis life insurance, some companies may exercise caution when considering an application. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for hepatitis life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have suffered severe liver failure as a result of hepatitis, you may find it more challenging to secure cover from an insurer. With our comparison service, at iLi we can help you find the right insurer that covers your needs.
If you have suffered from hepatitis but are now recovered and have had no severe complications or liver damage, you might be eligible for life insurance cover at standard rates. This will however depend on the severity of your hepatitis, the medications you were given and treatment you undertook following diagnosis, and whether or not you contracted hepatitis through drug use. These factors will determine the level of risk you pose to an insurer. If you have contracted hepatitis due to drug use and/or have had severe complications with your liver as a result of the condition, you may be offered cover with higher premiums.
You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your condition is severe, you are not taking medications to control your symptoms and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.

Critical illness cover for hepatitis sufferers
If you have hepatitis, depending on your circumstances and unless you have had major health complications as a result of your condition (such as liver failure), you should be offered critical illness cover on standard terms. You will need to demonstrate to an insurer that you are now recovered and that your hepatitis no longer affects your day to day activities or health. As with life insurance, if your hepatitis was as a result of drug use, your application is likely to be declined, or you may face higher premiums. An insurer may want to see medical records from your GP.
