Hi,

 Has anyone tried to submit a claim on Vitality here? I was recently diagnosed with melanoma stage 3B.

Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community although I'm sorry you've had to find us.

How are you?  Can I ask if this claim is for critical illness cover and do you have something in particular you need to know before claiming? Vitality Insurance isn't a company I've personally had any dealings with.

Hi Latchbrook, Im good, still a bit shock of my recent diagnosis of 3b melanoma, at 24, it isnt something I am expecting. How about you how are you? Yes, I am covered with vitality for critical life cover. And I wonder if anyone had a claim with this in the group

I'm not surprised that you're still in shock . It's not a diagnosis you expect at your age,

I don't recall anyone in the group mentioning Vitality Insurance before, but that's not to say no one on here has claimed just not mentioned it. If it's critical illness cover you have then it should say in your policy documents which cancers they cover and will pay out on. If you can't find the information just give them a call and they'll tell you. I would imagine you'd need to speak to them on the phone anyway to start the claim.

I'm well thank you. Went for another 3 monthly check-up last Wednesday and everything is still okay. Are you having further treatment for your melanoma?
