‘Excessive premiums for ex-cancer patient’
Hundreds of thousands of Dutch people who have ever in their life have cancer, sometimes decades ago, often have major problems at the conclusion of a life insurance policy.
That concludes the Dutch Federation of Kankerpatiëntenorganisaties (NFK) in a Thursday published research.
“Get the (ex)patients, difficult or against excessive premiums, a proposal for such insurance,” says the federation. NFK gives the example of an ex-patient that an insurer, a fee had to pay in 1566 percent. The maandpremie went up from 9 euros to 143 euros. When a different insurer was the premium by almost half, up from 7 euros to 11 euros.
A life insurance policy (term life insurance) is usually required for the issuance of a mortgage for the purchase of a new home.
