When you have a GI condition and need life insurance, this guide will help you.
How will GI problems affect life insurance?
If you have an Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis, underwriting may be complicated.
The type of digestive disease or gastrointestinal disorder that you have affects high-risk life insurance underwriting.
But there are insurance companies that specialize in these medical conditions.
Life insurers look at your overall health history, including:
- The type of digestive tract condition you have
- Time since diagnosis
- Treatment received
- Current health.
Other GI issues such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the impact on life insurance underwriting is minimal if at all.
GI Underwriting Questions to Know
In order to provide you with accurate quotes, we’ll need to know the following about your medical history:
- What type of health issue do you have?
- When were you diagnosed?
- What type of treatment did you receive?
- When did your treatment begin and end?
- Were you cured or do you require ongoing treatment?
- What medications do you take?
- Do you have recurring symptoms? If yes, what are they?
- Have you been declined for life insurance? By what company?
Life insurance underwriters want to know if you have other high-risk health conditions.
Heart disease, cancer or family history of parents or siblings having any of these conditions could impact your rate.
As a side note, the American College of Gastroenterology has a great website that classifies GI problems by severity.
