Things Have Changed – Part Nine” … Commentary by Chris Morgan

What to do if your declined for Life Insurance and have multiple medical conditions?

Many people will be aware that I’ve been consulting with the Life Insurance Industry regarding HIV related matters since 2005. During this last 17 years, I’ve witnessed literally thousands of applications for Life Insurance that have been declined, postponed or accepted with amended terms.

Many of these applications were declined because the person had multiple medical conditions on their file, which meant they were considered too high risk for Life Insurance. Unusual Risks are aware of significant number of people who were declined in the past due to their diagnosis of HIV combined with conditions such as Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Diabetes Type 1, Diabetes Type 2, Syphilis or Tuberculosis.

For the last two decades I have been leading a campaign to achieve equality for people living with HIV when they apply for Life Insurance. Finally, we are now able to offer Life Insurance for people with Co-Risk Medical conditions – even if you have multiple medical conditions or have been declined elsewhere before, be sure to try again with us.

Case Example, Vanessa, Age 52, … HIV & Multiple Medical Conditions

Before meeting myself Vanessa had been declined for Life Insurance elsewhere, but did not know the exact reason for this. When we looked into the clients medical history, there were many conditions. but they were all well very managed and also well documented in her medical records. Sometimes we find that insurers don’t read all of the medical facts presented to them and make quick decisions.

Even if you were declined for cover by an insurer in the past this does not mean that your are uninsurable forever. We are now able to insurer people with HIV who have also been diagnosed in the past with Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, Tuberculosis, Pneumonia, STIs, Syphilis, Anemia and many other Co-Risk medical conditions.
