Travel insurance for therapy centre in italy


We are going back to the European parkinsons therapy centre in Italy at the end of the month. Last time we went we had a problem with getting travel insurance as it seemed that travelling for treatment, even Physio, was a no no for insurance companies. So in order to be covered we had to tell a lie! Now we are in the same predicament. If we declare our reason for travel then we can’t get insurance and of course, if we fib then insurers would probably refuse to pay out. 

So, to anyone who’s been to the Italy centre, did you get travel insurance and on what basis? 

thanks! X
