What if I have Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes?
Diabetes is one of those health issues which contribute to heart disease, stroke, neuropathy, retinopathy, and nephropathy. This can develop into kidney failure, amputation, and even blindness. If you fall into any of these categories, it becomes difficult to get approved for a Traditional Life Policy.
If you work with an Independent Agent who is experienced in Diabetic Insurance nuances, he or she should be able to direct you to a company that may offer you a Graded or Guaranteed Life Insurance Policy if a Standard Policy is not available because of complications caused by your diabetes.
It is easy for diabetics to think that life insurance is out of reach, simply because they have been Declined for Coverage in the past. The good news is, not every life insurance company handles diabetic applicants in the same manner. Maybe you picked the wrong insurance company?
