Ulcerative Colitis / Crohns / IBS

Recommended Posts

Does any one know if these illnesses affect your visa applications?

 

I have had UC for 8 years now and thankfully dont suffer flare ups to often. However I am on medication (Asacol) to control it.

 

Could this affect any medical insurance that I would need?

If there is a pre existing medical condition you would not be covered for any care in the first 12 months of the policy.

IBS? I know all about that unfortunately - but, on a brighter side, it gives me free rein to tell everyone about my bowel movements. 'Every cloud in Sydney has a silver liining.'
