Since Ativan is a prescription medication used to treat anxiety disorders, you’re always going to need to account for its usage during a life insurance application.
How does one “account for its usage”?
That’s easy, since Ativan is a part of a family of drugs called benzodiazepines used to treat anxiety disorders, providing a careful examination of an applicant’s health history will help the insurance underwriters be able to make an accurate decision on whether or not to provide coverage as well as determine what rate class on should qualify for.
How serious is your “anxiety disorder”? Are we talking about a mild case of anxiety like getting nervous when having to speak in public? Or have to be in large crowds?
Or are we talking about more serious condition such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?
To try to answer this question, you’ll typically be asked questions such as:
- Have you been given an “official diagnosis” with regards to your “anxiety disorder”?
- Who originally prescribed the Ativan to you? Your primary care physician or a psychiatrist?
- At what age where you originally diagnosed?
- Was there an “event” that triggered your anxiety disorder?
- How long have you been treating your condition?
- Are you taking any other prescription medications to treat your anxiety disorder?
- Has the medication that your using to treat your anxiety disorder changed over the last 12 months?
- Have you ever been hospitalized for your condition?
- Have you ever suffered from suicidal ideation and/or attempted suicide?
- Are you currently working now?
- In the past 12 months have received or applied for any form of SSI disability?
Now as you can see this is a pretty extensive list that can give an insurance underwriter a pretty good idea about the severity of the condition as well as a list of follow up questions to ask if they are not certain.
Additionally, if it looks like your anxiety disorder isn’t that serious, there really isn’t any particular reason why you should be eligible to qualify for a “Preferred” rate or better. It’s really all going to come down to how “Serious” you condition looks.
