MS Life Insurance

We show you how to get approved for high-risk life insurance if you suffer from MS.

MS Life Insurance Overview

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, affecting millions according to the MS Society.

The good news is that for most people, you can get life insurance if you have MS.

Types of MS:

Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS) – The first time you have neurologic inflammation of your central nervous system.

Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS) – The most common type (85%) of MS, with attacks followed by periods of remission.

Secondary Progressive MS (SPMS) – Progressive worsening of neurologic functions, shorter remissions, and some disability.

Primary Progressive MS (PPMS) – is a worsening of neurologic functions with little to no remissions.

Underwriting Questions for MS

  • What type of MS do you have?
  • How many attacks per year do you have on average?
  • What was the date of your last episode?
  • What symptoms and complications do you have?
  • Do you fully recover in between episodes?
  • What types of diagnostic tests have you had?
  • What were the results of those tests?
  • What medications do you take?
  • What treatments have you received?
  • Have you developed any cognitive impairments?
  • Do you have any history of depression?
  • Do you have any other medical conditions?

A major factor for life insurance underwriting is the amount of time that has passed since your last attack.

Life Insurance Quotes for MS

We use a quick quote approach to shopping for you.

We summarize your medical history and reach out to companies for underwriting feedback (about 3 days).

Once we hear back from companies, we let you know what each company has to say in terms of underwriting and price.

Some ballpark guidelines:

Time Since the Last Attack Possible Underwriting Offers
Less Than 1 Year Postpone for most cases
1 Year – 2 Years 50 – 150% Table Rating
3 – 5 Years Standard – 125% Table Rating
6-10 Years Standard – 75% Table Rating
10 Years or Longer Standard Rates, possible preferred

Sample Case Studies

The best offers go to those with RRMS.

Normal neurologic examinations, no symptoms, and long periods of time between episodes.

For example, if it’s been 10 years since your last episode, you may receive “standard plus” offers from some companies.

If it’s only been one year since the last episode, the offer may include a table rating that adds 50-150% to the price.
