ABI extends moratorium

The ABI\'s moratorium on predictive genetic tests has been extended to 2014. The moratorium covers policies worth up to 500,000 for life insurance, 300,000 for critical illness insurance and 30,000 a year for income protection insurance. Stephen Haddrill, director general of the ABI says: \"The moratorium on the use of predictive genetic test results works well for consumers. It means people can insure themselves and their families, even if they have had an adverse result from a predictive genetic test.\"
