HIV & INSURANCE COLUMN – EDITION 18 – HIV & SYPHILIS LIFE INSURANCE

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

How can people living with HIV find the fairest premiums and terms for their Life Insurance?

During the last 13 years there have been many changes to the pricing and terms offered to people living with HIV for their Life Insurance. The onset of the COVID Pandemic in 2020, meant there were even more serious changes to the premiums being charged and the quality of the terms being offered by insurers.

We are aware that only 22% of Life Insurance Companies are currently offering Life Insurance products to people with HIV on the very fairest terms. Also only 16% of Banks currently offering the fairest terms to people living with HIV. This means that there is up to an 88% chance of a consumer not receiving the fairest terms for HIV Life Insurance.

Many of the companies involved are charging between double and three times the fairest premiums for exactly the same product. Unusual Risks are working extremely hard to make sure that all those living with HIV receive the fairest premiums and terms for their Life Insurance.

Case Example, Frederic, Age 43, Civil Servant … HIV & Syphilis

Frederic approached us for Life Insurance after being rejected by a Life Insurance Company who was recommended by his bank to cover his mortgage. They declined him for Life Insurance due to historic notes on his medical file relating to Syphilis and STIs – an experience he found very stressful. We were able to assist Frederic by introducing him to a more “friendly” insurer.

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 medical conditions.

If You Have Been Declined For Cover By Your Bank or Financial Adviser ? Things have changed and we can help !

Following the pandemic we have been more determined than ever to make sure that everyone is able to access some form of Life Insurance. We believe it is a basic human right for people, to protect their mortgages, debts and families.

We have encountered many people who have been adversely affected by the decisions of Life Insurance companies. We believe more than ever in “Life Insurance for All” and are able to guarantee access to some form of Life Insurance for everyone aged between 18-64.
