FCA updates on pre-existing conditions directory

FCA has noted the new travel insurance directory launched by MaPS for people with serious pre-existing medical conditions. The directory meets FCA’s criteria for a “Medical Cover Firm Directory” and insurers that offer retail travel insurance must include details of the directory on their websites from 30 days of the directory going live (today, 8 October). This should ensure consumers will have access to it ahead of the requirement for signposting in April 2021.
