Different types of life insurance policies

As mentioned above, there are two major types of life insuranceTraditional Life Insurance Plans and No Medical Life Insurance Policies.

Traditional life insurance plans ask a series of health questions and usually involve the insured completing one or more medical tests. Whereas, No Medical life insurance policies can be broken down into the following two categories:

  • Simplified-Issue Plans – These ask a short series of health questions and have no medical test(s). Approval usually depends on how those questions are answered.
  • Guaranteed-Issue Policies – These have no medical tests, no health questions and approval is typically automatic.
Many Simplified-Issue policies are available to applicants who do have a prior history of heart disease. There is usually a question related to whether the insured has had a heart attack, but coverage is often available if the heart attack was diagnosed over two years ago and the insured has not had a change in medication. These plans are often less expensive than Guaranteed-Issue policies.

Important details of No Medical Life Insurance

Many Simplified-Issue Life insurance policies offer coverage from day one. However, Guaranteed-Issue policies have a two-year waiting period, which means that if the insured dies in the first two years by a non-accidental death, the payout is limited to a return-of-premium, plus interest.
