Viral Hepatitis & Life InsuranceLife Insurance when you have had hepatitis can be relatively simple provided that you have fully recovered from the condition and there are no lasting complications with the liver. If this is the case and you have no other disclosures on your application it is likely that your policy will be accepted at standard terms straight away.

For those who still have hepatitis or have developed chronic hepatitis the insurer will want to develop an understanding of how much your health is affected by the condition. Any secondary conditions that you have will also need to be detailed to the insurer so that they can get a clear picture of your overall health. In these circumstances you will generally find that any offer of insurance that you are given will come with a higher policy premium to offset the added risk presented by the hepatitis.

Critical Illness Cover for those who have had hepatitis should also be quite standard to arrange provided that you have fully recovered and there is no lasting liver damage. As hepatitis is generally an acute condition that results in a lifelong resistance once fully recovered, insurers will often offer Critical Illness Cover at normal terms. Please see the list of conditions below to establish how hepatitis is viewed by insurers.

Critical Illness Cover for those with acute or chronic hepatitis will need to be arranged with a specialist insurer.


Applying for Income Protection when you have had hepatitis should be pretty straightforward. If you have fully recovered and have no lasting implications with the liver then Income Protection will typically be available at standard terms.

For those who still have hepatitis you will need to apply specifically for short-term Income Protection policies. Whilst you should be eligible for this type of policy the insurer will review your cover on a case by case basis. They will be particularly interested in whether the hepatitis has caused any time off work. You will find that any offer of Income Protection that you are given will come with an exclusion to any claim that is related to hepatitis.
