Sorry I signed up for insurance for my trip to Singapore that came for a few extra bucks through my travel agency/airline. However, there is a pre-existing conditions clause I think. I will still be covered if there is a death in the family or I get sinus infection and can't fly but I dont think I will be covered for crohns related issues. Im not really sure.

Are you asking for medical insurance while traveling or insurance for your trip should younot be able to go? If it is medical, I don't know UK insurance, but do you have coverage with a carrier currently. Find out from them if they include travel protection. I know our product includes free travel assistance---directs you to better providers, helps get you home, helps negotiate prices, etc.
