Main Factor in Finding Life Insurance Coverage for Someone taking Acetaminophen.
The main factor that’s going to come into play with regards to getting you insured will not be the use of the Acetaminophen, Endocet or Oxycodone per say, rather it will be the underlying cause that required you being prescribed Acetaminophen.
Why did you receive a prescription for Acetaminophen?
Acetaminophen is a part of a large group of drugs called narcotic pain relievers that are typically used to relieve moderate to server pain.
So since Acetaminophen is considered a “narcotic” pain reliever, life insurance companies and more specifically life insurance underwriters are going to focus a lot of their time and energy on understanding the root cause and the long term diagnosis of your condition.
The main area of concern to will be on the risk of abuse of any “narcotic” pain relievers and the associated risks that, that entails.
Which is why the insurance carriers are going to focus on questions like:
- Why have you been prescribed your pain med?
- Is this the only pain medication you’re currently taking?
- Is you condition a temporary issue or a chronic one?
- How long have you been taking Acetaminophen?
- Has the dosage remained stable?
- When do you anticipate being taking off of your pain med?
- Or will you need to continue to use it?
- Are you currently working?
- Are you receiving disability benefits?
- Do you have any history of drugs or alcohol abuse?
- Do you have an DUI’s on your driving record?
Questions like these and many others will help the insurance underwriter begin to get an idea about your overall condition and help them determine what type of “risk” you should be considered.
What we’ll want to try to do here at TermLife2Go with your application is:
“try to paint an accurate picture of your health”.
Meaning that if you’re healthy and should be considered a good “risk” for the insurance company, we’ll want to make that clear in the application process.
Conversely, if you’re not necessarily a good risk for a traditional term or whole life insurance policy, meaning that its very unlikely that you’ll be approved, it will then be our job to either recommend an alternative insurance product or, sample test your application with several carriers prior to making you go through a medical exam (saving you the time and aggravation of being denied)
Don’t be, we here at TermLife2Go we specialize on cases that many other insurance brokerages might consider “higher’ risk. Fact is, your Acetaminophen could be used to just treat a minor injury and have little to no effect on your overall application. We just won’t know until we examine your individual case.
So what are you waiting for, give us a call today so that we can not only learn about your Acetaminophen use, but also learn about what you’re hoping to achieve by purchasing your life insurance. Are you looking to:
