Europa Donna Cyprus and the Cyprus Association of Insurance Companies has come into an Agreement, effective on 1/1/23.

Cancer survivors in Cyprus are allowed access to life insurance coverage as from 1/1/2023 following a ‘landmark’ agreement between Europa Donna Cyprus and the Cyprus Association of Insurance Companies (SAEK).

The agreement makes Cyprus a pioneering member state of the European Union on this important social issue.

This ‘landmark’ agreement paves the way for a vulnerable group of citizens, such as cancer patients, to redefine their lives without the bad memories of the past.

Specifically, the “right to be forgotten” is now granted to people who reach 10 years after the end of recovery. That is, in the case of people who were 18 years of age or older when diagnosed.

For people under 18 years of age, when diagnosed, the time period is reduced from 10 to 5 years.

The ‘right to be forgotten’ means the right not to be discriminated when a former cancer patient asks for specific credit services and life insurance after a set period of time has passed. The life insurance applies for housing loans of up to 200.000 euro per person.

No, at the moment, there is no legislation covering this issue. That is, there is no legal protection at the moment. However, Europa Donna Cyprus, as part of the "Right to be Forgotten" campaign, continues its effort and pressure so that a legislation is voted and implemented on life insurance for cancer survivors.

Both the existing agreement and the effort for legal protection, apply to all types of cancer.
