Do I need to tell my insurer about sleep apnea?

I've been diagnosed with sleep apnea and need a machine to aid breathing at night. The sleep nurse said I'd need to inform the DVLA within three months. Do I need to inform my insurer? Is there anything I should be aware of?

If the health professional has told you to inform the DVLA then you will also be required to tell your insurer about this condition. Failure to do so could invalidate your cover.
