Living with a Mechanical Heart Valve: Click.Tick.Thump. Love It!

Support Group for Mechanical & Artificial Heart Valve Surgery & Using Warfarin

Hi All,

I hope you are all well and enjoying our glorious summer.

I am considering a trip to the US with some friends next year and I note that many other members refer to their experiences abroad. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding travel insurance? Is there any companies who specialise in dealing with us bionic travellers? Equally, is there any insurers I should avoid as their small print excludes our condition? Any suggestions would be most welcome. The mechanical heart valve community have always given excellent advice to fellow members, so I`m sure someone will be able to help. Many thanks, Steve Blake.

Hi Steve - for the last couple of years I have been using AllClear travel insurance which is an online broker. You have to fill in a medical questionnaire with your conditions and then they show you the various deals you can get. You then buy the policy online or you can call them if need be. I recently got a joint annual policy (with my wife) with my MHV and Aorta Graft declared for £138 with Zurich. It was rest of the world so did not include US which would be more expensive.

You can buy single trip insurance as well but as I had a number of trips planned over the next 12 months the annual policy was more cost effective.

Thanks, John. I will take a look as you suggest and see what they have to offer.

In the meantime I hope you enjoy your travels around the world and continue to benefit from good health. Many thanks for your reply. Steve.
