Cancer is considered to be a chronic condition and is not covered under travel medical insurance. Typically, chronic and congenital conditions are excluded with travel medical insurance. Examples are high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. The only thing that is covered in relation to a pre-existing condition is something diagnosed as an acute onset of a pre-existing condition. An acute onset of a pre-existing condition is a sudden and unexpected recurrence of a pre-existing condition and is up to the doctors diagnosis. To read more about what an acute onset of a pre-existing condition is, see our blog post about Acute Onset of Pre-Existing Conditions Explained.
