Sickle Cell, Life Insurance Options

I strongly believe that everyone should have life insurance. Many people feel that life insurance is for the unhealthy but the fact is life insurance is really for the healthy (you need to apply while healthy).

Applying for Life Insurance with Diabetes

Diabetes and Life Insurance

One of the many challenges facing a diabetic is when it comes to qualifying for life insurance coverage.

When a person is diagnosed with diabetes, life insurance policies can become unaffordable or unobtainable. This is because life insurance policies are underwritten by the insurer and they can charge a premium based upon an applicant's health status. In addition, the insurer can choose not to issue the policy based on information from the applicant's health status. One of the major factors in approved premiums is control.
