Our unique comparison service and network of approved impaired insurance specialists can help you quickly and easily find Hodgkin lymphoma life insurance cover that will put your mind at rest.

Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of cancer that develops in the lymphatic system (a network of glands and vessels in your body that form part of the immune system). Those who suffer from Hodgkin lymphoma suffer from B-lymphocytes multiplying in their lymphatic system (the lymph nodes). Common symptoms of Hodgkin lymphoma include increased vulnerability to infection and swelling in the lymph nodes. The condition can occur at any age, but is most common in people when they are between 20-30 and over 70.

The risk of developing Hodgkin lymphoma is increased if you have previously suffered from a medical condition that weakens the immune system, if you've taken immunosuppressant medications, or if you have suffered from glandular fever. It can also be passed down through a family's medical history. As a cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma can advance quickly, but is also treated highly successfully. Treatments include chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Overall, insurers do offer life insurance cover for people who have been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, as around 85% of people that have the condition are successfully treated and cured. There is however a risk of further health complications following treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma, and a chance of the cancer spreading.

If you have been diagnosed with a cancerous condition like Hodgkin lymphoma, you may be wondering whether an insurer will accept you for life insurance cover. Hodgkin lymphoma is a cancerous condition, and is highly invasive, with a high risk of spreading, therefore the number of insurers offering cover may be more limited. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for Hodgkin lymphoma life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If your life expectancy is shortened because your Hodgkin lymphoma has developed into other forms of cancer, it can be more challenging to find an insurer that meets your needs.

This is where iLL can help you find the right insurer for your personal circumstances.

Hodgkin lymphoma is considered by insurers to be a high-risk cancerous medical condition. You should therefore expect to pay higher premiums for cover than a person with no health conditions at all, or a person with a pre-existing medical condition. Premiums from insurers will generally depend on the severity of your Hodgkin lymphoma, when you were first diagnosed, whether you have had radiotherapy or chemotherapy to control the cancer, and whether or not the cancer has spread to other areas of your body. This will determine the level of risk you pose to an insurer.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL is the perfect place to find the best impaired Hodgkin lymphoma life insurance specialist.

You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your Hodgkin lymphoma is severe, you have had unsuccessful chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment and your life expectancy is shortened, there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future. A loading fee may therefore be applied to cover this risk.

Further cover for Hodgkin lymphoma life insurance

If you are looking to apply for critical illness cover and you have Hodgkin lymphoma in your medical history, it is likely that you will need to take out a policy with a specialist insurer that understands your circumstances. Any critical illness policy you take out is likely to have a cancer exclusion. An insurer is likely to request details from your GP to determine the severity of your Hodgkin lymphoma, whether you have any health complications as a result of receiving treatment, and what your prognosis is. If you have severe complications with a high grading Hodgkin lymphoma, you may be denied cover.

With iLL's comparison service, you can search the market to find the right cover. Every application is assessed differently, so fill in our simple form to get matched with a quote from the right approved and vetted insurer today.
