NFU Mutual's policy on genetic tests

NFU Mutual operates a moratorium in respect of genetic test results whereby the applicant does not need to tell us about any genetic test result they have had if the application is for life assurance, critical illness or income protection policies where the sum assured when taken together with any simultaneous applications and any existing policies already held for this type of insurance totals £500,000 or less.

Above these limits we need to be told only about certain genetic test results which have been approved for insurers to use by the Government's Genetics and Insurance Committee (GAIC).
Currently only one test has been approved which is for Huntington's Disease and this is in respect of life assurance applications only.

If an applicant wishes to disclose to us a negative genetic test result which shows that they have not inherited a genetic disorder then we will take this into account in setting the premium, providing the clinical geneticist confirms that the test result indicates a reduced risk of inheriting the disease.
