Insurance & IBD

If you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis (the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease - IBD) you may have difficulty finding insurance cover. Having a chronic (ongoing) condition such as Crohn's or Colitis can mean that the insurance you are offered is more expensive.
