What should I do about an insurance company's report request?
I have been approached by an insurance company to let them have a report on a patient of mine who took out holiday insurance and who is a well-controlled insulin dependent diabetic. On holiday the patient became seriously ill during a bout of gastro-enteritis and had to be hospitalised as a result of diabetic keto-acidosis. I don't think the insurer was aware that she had diabetes as the patient didn't declare it when taking out the insurance. What should I do?
