TRAVEL INSURANCE - MESSAGE FROM CHRIS THOMAS
Transplant Australia has been pleased to refer its members to AIG (formerly Chartis) for travel insurance over the past four years. Almost 500 members have been able to travel overseas in this period with the comfort of knowing that they will be protected.
AIG has recently changed its assessment procedures which means that in the long term this policy may no longer be suitable for transplant recipients. As CEO I have met with AIG and we are in discussions about the way forward. We are pleased that AIG has listened to our concerns and reinstated the previous assessment procedures for an additional three months to ensure our members are able to be assessed in line with the previous process and are able to access what has been a very beneficial product.
In the meantime we will discuss our needs with AIG and a range of other insurance providers.If you require travel insurance please do not hesitate to contact AIG for the time being. We will keep our members updated on any developments.
