What is a TIA?

A TIA is a transient ischaemic attack, which is essentially a mini stroke that is caused by blood flow becoming temporarily restricted to the brain. This disruption means that the brain is temporarily starved of oxygen, causing similar symptoms to a stroke. A TIA can last from just a few minutes to a few hours, but is not as damaging as a stroke. Symptoms of a TIA are however very similar to a stroke, including loss of feeling in the arms and legs, an inability to raise the arms, mumbled speech and a fallen face. Emergency treatment should be sought in the case of a TIA. If a TIA is suspected, it is recommended to give the patient aspirin to prevent the development of a stroke.

There are many factors that could cause a TIA. These include smoking, high blood pressure, heavy drinking, being overweight or obese, having a high cholesterol level, having an irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) and having diabetes. If any of the above applies to you, your chances of developing a TIA are increased.

TIA life insurance is available with many insurers. Premiums will depend on your circumstances.

Finding TIA life insurance with the best insurer

When you have suffered a TIA, it can feel overwhelming to try and find the right TIA life insurance cover for your needs. There are many insurers out there that will accept applications for TIA life insurance on standard terms. However, some insurers can be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for TIA life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. If you have had major health complications, had a TIA that has developed into a stroke, or had a long period of hospitalisation as a result of a TIA, it may be more difficult to find an insurer that will accept your application.

Finding the right insurer for your personal circumstances is simple with iLL’s comparison service. Just fill in a 30-second form to be put in touch with insurers offering life cover following a TIA.

Costs for TIA life insurance premiums

TIA life insurance can be accepted at standard rates if your TIA was a long time ago and you have since made changes to your health and lifestyle. If you have had no further health complications since your TIA, an insurer may look on this favourably. Your premiums will however depend on the severity of your TIA, the medications and treatment you undertook, and the overall level of risk you pose to an insurer.
Prices from insurers will vary from company to company, which is why iLL is the right place to compare and find the best TIA 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 your TIA was severe and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk.
At iLL, our specialist impaired life insurance partners and comparison service can help you find the right FCA-regulated life insurer that suits your needs, helping you to compare prices and find the best deal so that all of your insurance requirements are met.

It is likely that many insurers will place exclusions on critical illness cover in relation to cardiovascular conditions and stroke.
