What are the different underwriting types?

    Full Medical Underwriting (FMU) requires you to provide your complete medical history – and that of all policyholders when you take out your policy. The information you provide may mean the insurer excludes certain conditions from cover for the lifetime of the policy.

    Moratorium Underwriting does not require you to disclose your medical history. However, for the first two years of your policy you will not be covered for anything you’ve had symptoms, treatment, medication, diagnostic tests or advice on, in the past five years before your policy start date. If, after a two-year consecutive period you go symptom, treatment, medication or advice free from that condition, then it will become eligible for cover again. Switching your policy allows you to move from one insurance provider to another and still be covered for medical conditions that you may have had problems within the past. More on underwriting.
