Genetics and Insurance

The Association of British Insurers has produced information about the types of policies and genetic information.

There is a useful set of FAQs about genetics and insurance, including the use and disclosure of the results of genetic tests obtained not only through clinical services but also through research studies.

The ABI and the Department of Health have published an updated Code on Genetic Testing and Insurance (2018).  It explains what an insurance company does and does not need to know about the genetic testing you may have had when you apply for insurance.
