The UK’s finance watchdog is looking into whether cancer patients get a fair deal in travel insurance.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Financial Conduct Authority said it’s “seeking views and evidence of the challenges firms face in providing travel insurance for consumers who have, or have had, cancer, and the challenges for these consumers in accessing insurance.”
Christopher Woolard, a director at the FCA, said:
Being able to access financial services is critical for people to fully participate in society. We hope that this will encourage discussion on access issues to examine the challenges for firms and consumers.
The FCA’s call for input is here.
