Huntington's disease is a severe brain condition that affects parts of the brain, preventing them from functioning properly. It is a condition that is passed down genetically through a family's medical history. The condition usually gets worse over time and is usually fatal after a sufferer has had it for 20 or more years. Common symptoms include depression, mobility issues, clumsiness, problems focusing and concentrating, memory loss, jerking and fidgety movements, problems swallowing and speaking and mood swings. During later stages of the condition, a person often needs full time nursing care.

Huntington's disease is caused by a faulty gene in a family's medical history. Parents who have the gene have a greater risk of passing it on to their children. It is common in both men and women. If a parent has the faulty gene, there is a 50% chance of their children developing the condition. There is currently no cure for Huntington's disease, but treatment can ease symptoms to help a sufferer feel more comfortable. Treatments include occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy to help with movement and speech problems.

If you have been diagnosed with Huntington's disease, it is likely that you will require life insurance cover through a specialist insurer.

Huntington's disease is a very serious and upsetting condition, and it can be difficult knowing where to secure life insurance cover for your needs. As Huntington's Disease is a severely debilitating condition without a cure and a fatal prognosis, many insurers will be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for Huntington's disease life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. Typically, those with Huntington's disease have a shorter life expectancy, meaning that standard insurers often won't insure them. Thankfully, there are a handful of specialist insurers that will offer life insurance for Huntington's disease sufferers. iLL can save you time and money by helping you to find the right Huntington's disease life insurance provider for your circumstances.

Huntington's Disease is considered by insurers to be a high-risk medical condition, therefore only some specialist insurers will offer cover for higher premiums. Many insurers will want to know further details of your family medical history. If you have had a positive genetic test for Huntington's disease, but have not exhibited any symptoms, you may be offered cover with lower premiums.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL is the perfect place to find the best impaired Huntington's disease 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 you have had a positive genetic test for Huntington's disease, there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, and a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.

Further cover for Huntington's Disease life insurance

If you have Huntington's disease, you will not be eligible for critical illness cover at standard rates. You will need to speak to a specialist insurer that understands your health and circumstances. Any critical illness policy offered, even with a specialist insurer, is likely to have exclusions placed upon it relating to Huntington's disease. If you have a family history of Huntington's disease, you may be able to obtain critical illness cover, but this will depend on whether you are experiencing symptoms and have had a genetic test.
