Life Insurance

Life Insurance for people who have had hepatitis E will generally be available at normal terms, if you are fully recovered from the condition and have no resultant liver complications. The insurer will want to know the time of your diagnosis, the treatments that you took and the time since you fully recovered from the condition.

If you still have hepatitis E and are undergoing treatment there is a potential that you could get Life Insurance at non-standard terms, likely in the form of a premium increase.
