Post-transplant insurance

Recommended Posts

My husband had a kidney transplant a few weeks ago. We are in the process of submitting a claim to cover the cruise we were supposed to go on next week (which we bought through your site). When we cancelled our upcoming cruise, we booked a new one for next year. We had spoken to the transplant team and they said this shouldn't be in issue.


Any suggestions for what kind of insurance we should book? In the past, we've purchased pre-existing condition insurance that was good as long as we could travel when the trip/coverage was bought (about a year out). That type of insurance will not work under these circumstances because he can't travel now, but if all goes as planned traveling a year from now will not be an issue. We want to purchase a policy that will cover us "just in case" he can't travel because of the transplant or any other reason.
