How Your Health Will Impact Your Eligibility And The Price

Some health conditions might cause you to pay a higher price, and some will not. For example, high blood pressure (unless uncontrolled) will not result in higher premiums. On the other hand, a recent heart attack or stroke will surely cause you to pay more or be subjected to a modified plan with a waiting period.

Understand that every life insurance company will have different underwriting and prices. So, while one company might charge diabetic applicants a higher premium, another might not.

That’s why it’s crucial to work with a broker like Choice Mutual or National Family that can compare 10+ providers to identify which will give you the best deal based on your health and lifestyle.

Generally, if you have any of the following medical conditions, you can find one or more final expense insurance companies that will approve you for the lowest rate they offer and coverage with no waiting period.

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 1 or 2 diabetes
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Lupus
  • Crohn’s disease
  • COPD
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Seizure conditions
  • Thyroid issues
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Past heart attacks
  • Past strokes
  • Cancer (over two years ago)
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Kidney disease
  • Blood clots
  • Schizophrenia
  • Atrial Fibrillation


Underwriting Options: Exam, No-Exam & No Health Questions

There are three types of underwriting (varies by the company) for a whole life insurance policy with a $75,000 death benefit.

  • No-Exam: Also commonly known as “simplified issue,” a no-medical exam policy does not require you to meet with a nurse to give a blood and urine sample. Qualification is only dependent upon your answers to health questions. In addition to the health questions, the insurance company will electronically review your medication history because that provides great insight into your overall health history.
  • Guaranteed Issue: Also commonly known as “guaranteed acceptance life insurance,” this type of policy has no underwriting whatsoever. That means you don’t have to take an exam or answer health questions. These policies frequently appear on TV, such as the Colonial Penn 9.95 plan. It’s imperative to remember that all guaranteed acceptance policies have a two-year waiting period. The insurance provider will only refund your premiums if you die in the first 24 months. Guaranteed issue plans are typically unavailable to young adults because most carriers make these plans available starting at age 50. Also, these types of policies generally have a maximum coverage amount of $25,000. So, if you want $75,000 in coverage, you’ll likely need to buy multiple policies from different providers to get to $75K. For example, you might need to buy a $25K policy from AAA, Gerber Life, and AIG.
  • Fully Underwritten: This option requires you to meet with a nurse so they can weigh you, measure your health, check your blood pressure, and collect a blood and urine sample. In addition, the insurance company will order copies of all your medical records from all your physicians. After receiving all this information, the insurance company will determine if they can offer you coverage and at what price. Generally, fully underwritten applications take 4-8 weeks before a policy is approved or declined. The main advantage of fully underwritten applications is the price. Because the insurance company knows everything about your health (in great detail), the insurance costs less.

There will be no waiting period if approved for a fully underwritten or no-exam policy. It’s advisable to only opt for a guaranteed issue policy if your medical conditions prevent you from qualifying for anything else.


How Does Whole Life Insurance Work?

Whole life insurance is a type of permanent policy that lasts forever and guarantees that nothing will change. The death benefit and premium cannot change.

Also, it will build cash value, which is like a behind-the-scenes equity account. Every time you make a premium payment, a small portion is redirected into the cash value account, and you can withdraw and use that money however you want.

The insurance company will pay your beneficiaries through a tax-free check when you die. There are no restrictions on how they use that money so that they can spend it on funeral expenses, debts, medical bills, or anything else. Also, any leftover money is theirs to keep.
