Two out of three multiple sclerosis sufferers have one thing in common.

They’re women

There are around 100,000 multiple sclerosis sufferers in the UK1. In fact it’s one of the five most common critical illnesses claimed for2. What’s more, it affects twice as many women as men1.

 Multiple sclerosis is also very difficult to diagnose.

That’s why many providers use the standard definition from the Association of British Insurers to make decisions on a claim.

But at Bright Grey their definition of multiple sclerosis is better than that and means you don’t have to wait as long for your diagnosis to be confirmed3.

1 in 9 of all women’s critical illness claims were for multiple sclerosis2

81%   of the women who claimed for multiple sclerosis were 40 or younger2

65,000 women in the UK have been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis1
