How Burial Insurance Companies Respond to Diabetes
In this day and age, diabetes is an extremely common condition. For this reason, most burial insurance companies have designed their plans to accept people with diabetes. Furthermore, there are even final expense life insurance plans that accept serious complications that were the result of diabetes.
One key thing to remember is that these burial insurance companies all have different underwriting guidelines. To put it another way, every carrier will accept and decline different diabetic issues.
For example, company A might be perfectly fine with you taking insulin daily. However, company B might completely decline you because of it. This scenario is basically true for all the issues any diabetic might face.
Here’s the bottom line:
No matter how mild or severe your diabetes, no matter what complications you have or don’t have, there are affordable options for you! If you deal with some major diabetic issues, please refer to the list below. These are links to detailed articles about each diabetic condition. Check them out if you want a more thorough explanation for each of these issues.
Remember, affordable burial insurance for diabetics is available even if you have some of these serious complications.
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Neuropathy (Nerve/Circulatory Issues due to diabetes)
- Nephropathy (Kidney issues due to diabetes)
- Retinopathy (Eye issues due to diabetes)
- Diabetic Coma
