Long Covid is characterised by a variety of physiological and psychological issues, including fatigue, breathlessness, cognitive blunting (‘brain fog’) and pain.
Christine Husbands, Managing Director for UK healthcare company RedArc, said: “This is clearly an emerging situation and one which is likely to be challenging for insurers, in terms of dealing with claims and underwriting for this new relatively unknown condition and its long-term implications. Offering practical help and emotional support for those diagnosed with the condition will help ensure the right people receive the best possible support for their individual symptoms, as well as helping to reduce the potential size and incidence of claims for the condition.”
