Life Insurance for Crohn's Disease


I'm a newbie to the forum and hoping to find some help. My Wife has Crohn's disease, diagnosed over 20 years ago and thankfully is pretty well after a very rocky start.

She has recently applied for life insurance and has been given cover but at nearly three times the expected cost. We put our application with an Independent Financial Advisor who was not shocked at the cost and says it is normal. Seems ridiculous to me that it costs so much when she's been in remission for at least 10 years!

Has anyone had a good quote for crohn's disease life insurance that seemed to buck the trend?

We're UK based so I presume it would need to be a UK company.

thanks for any help
