Take a Look at the Big Picture
the 2017 Insurance Barometer Study by Life Happens and LIMRA, roughly 85% of consumers agree that most people
need life insurance, yet only 59% actually have insurance. Why is there
such a disparity?
For one, there are numerous factors that can contribute to a person’s
ability to purchase insurance, including:
- Recently being diagnosed with heart disease
- Being diagnosed with heart disease before the age of 50
- Recently being diagnosed with a major disease like cancer
- Having significant mental health issues
- Having kidney and/or liver disease
- Wrongly thinking they don’t qualify
Getting Through the Roadblocks
The truth is, most health histories can be insured if the person just looks
around for the right company offering an affordable rate.
If you are dealing with a serious health conditions, remember that life
insurance companies take note when people show they are working to improve
or properly maintain their health. So if you are over the age of 50 and
have been diagnosed with heart disease, but your lifestyle choices have
resolved your condition for a few years, you can qualify for a life insurance
policy. If you have control of your diabetes through diet and medication,
you might also be able to qualify. The same goes for mental health if
it is managed with medication and you lead a normal life.
The more closely you adhere to your doctor’s guidelines, the more
likely it is that you will qualify for a life insurance policy.
