Client’s Family History Have You Down? We Have a Solution!Ryan Hogan
If you feel challenged with significant adverse family history compromising your client’s ability to achieve best rates, one of our ‘A’ rated carriers has a solution.
Here are some examples:
• 67- year- old male
• 5’10”, 190 lbs.
• BP averages 140/84, total cholesterol 218, & Chol/HDL ratio 4.6
• Father died at age 45 due to a heart attack and mother died at age 60 due to advanced breast cancer
• No other adverse medical history in his APS records
Underwriting decision: Preferred Best!
Key factor: Family history is NOT considered when the proposed insured is older than 65. Therefore, the fact that our individual had two parents dying of heart disease/cancer at age 60 and younger had no bearing on the final decision.
• 42- year- old female
• 5’3”, 154 lbs.
• BP averages 130/80, total cholesterol 220, & Chol/HDL ratio 4.2
• Both hypertension and cholesterol are currently being treated with medications
• Father passed away at age 59 due to prostate cancer
• No other adverse medical history in her APS records
Underwriting Decision: Preferred Best!
Key factor: Gender specific cancers are not considered on proposed insured’s of the opposite sex. Since our female applicant’s adverse family history was due to a male disease, it also had no bearing on the final decision.
