Barret's Oesophagus is a pre-cancerous condition in which normal cells lining the food pipe (the oesophagus) develop abnormalities. Abnormal cells appear from where the oesophagus meets the stomach, spreading upwards. Although it is considered a pre-cancerous condition, the majority of people with Barrett's Oesophagus do not develop oesophageal cancer.

The exact cause of Barrett's Oesophagus is currently unknown, although it has been strongly linked to Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease, which is known to cause frequent heartburn. 1 in 10 people with Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease develop Barrett's Oesophagus, as the acid from repeated reflux damages healthy tissue and the lining of the oesophagus. Other factors that can lead to Barrett's Oesophagus include age, family medical history, smoking and other lifestyle factors such as heavy drinking.

If your Barrett's Oesophagus is under control, you may be offered cover on standard terms or with small premium increases. Acceptance for life insurance will always depend on your circumstances, overall health and the severity of your condition.

If you're looking for Barrett’s Oesophagus life insurance cover, you might be wondering where you can find the right affordable policy for your needs. As Barrett’s Oesophagus is considered a pre-cancerous medical condition, many insurers will be stricter in their application process and acceptance criteria. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for Barrett’s Oesophagus life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have a heightened risk of your Barrett’s Oesophagus developing into cancer, you may find it difficult to find an insurer that will accept you for life insurance cover. iLL takes the hassle out of life insurance applications – we can help you find the right insurer for your personal circumstances with our quick comparison tool that puts your details before a panel of vetted and approved insurers.

Barrett’s Oesophagus is considered by insurers to be a pre-cancerous medical condition. If your condition is under control through mild medications, you could be offered cover on standard terms or with slightly higher premiums. If you do have complications as a result of your Barrett’s Oesophagus, i.e. a large area of your oesophagus is affected by abnormal cells and you have a greater risk of developing cancer (or already have cancer), you may need to be referred to a specialist insurer that can offer you affordable cover.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on your overall health and whether you have any complications. iLL is the perfect place to find the best impaired Barrett’s Oesophagus 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 there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future because of a heightened risk of cancer, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.
