Travel Insurance 5 years later

Found myself feeling quite upset this afternoon after an hour on my mobile trying to get travel insurance from QBE for a 6 week overseas trip in September.

After answering so many personal questions about my health - I've been clear of treatment for cancer since April 2012 but visit my oncologist and surgeon annually plus have a mammogram and untrasound to check all is clear.

So becaue I had cancer and declared it I'm charged an $150 on the premium! (they also refused to cover eye problems after catarract surgery 6 months ago even though its listed as covered in the PDS).

Have others had this happen to them? Seems quite discriminatory to me or do I need to just suck it up and accept thats the way it is now?
