Around 100,000 people in the UK are affected by multiple sclerosis, which has symptoms that can range from fatigue to serious difficulties with mobility.
It is possible to get insurance to cover you financially in the event you are diagnosed with MS.
The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has released a set of guidelines on the provision of critical illness insurance in the UK. With regards to people suffering from multiple sclerosis the guidelines state:
- There must have been a definite diagnosis of the condition by a neurologist
- The condition should have lead to you currently suffering from impairments to your motor or sensory functions
- The condition must have persisted for at least 6 months
