Does Aviva cover pre-existing conditions?

A 'pre-existing condition' is when you've had symptoms, medication, advice, treatment or diagnostic tests for a disease, illness or injury before your cover started. How we deal with pre-existing conditions depends on the type of underwriting you choose. Health insurance is designed to cover treatment of acute, short-term conditions that occur after you’ve taken out the policy.
