Does Kogan Travel Insurance cover pre-existing conditions?
Travel insurance is designed to provide you with cover in unexpected circumstances, which is why cover for pre-existing conditions is a contentious issue. However, Kogan Travel Insurance includes cover for 43 pre-existing medical conditions, provided that you have not been hospitalised within the last 24 months.
Conditions covered include asthma, cataracts and osteoporosis. Other more serious conditions such as both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol are also covered, albeit with several caveats. Please read the product disclosure statement (PDS) for the full details.

- Cross-country skiing outside of a designated cross-country ski route
- Free climbing
- Freestyle skiing/snowboarding
