Life Insurance

Life Insurance for people who have had hepatitis A may be available at normal terms if you are completely clear from the virus and have no resultant liver damage. If you still have hepatitis A and /or are receiving treatment for the condition then the insurer you approach may choose to offer you Life Insurance at non-standard terms. This would involve an increase to the policy premium.
