Down’s syndrome and insurance problems

Olivero P., Avolio G.


PDF


After reviewing the main characteristics of Down's syndrome, the authors examine the problems arising from the relationship between Down individuals and private insurance companies in different settings: life assurance, accident insurance, insurance against permanent disability caused by disease, and insurance for the reimbursement of hospitalisation costs and medical and surgical treatment. Having underlined the importance of a correct evaluation of the health of the person to be insured by filling in a questionnaire and undergoing a medical checkup, the authors express their hope that insurance products purposely designed for Down persons will soon appear on the market.
