Researcher & Writer
March 30, 2020

There are certain medications that can effect your life insurance policy. Is Xanax (alphrazolam) one? Read on.

Why do life insurance companies care if I am currently taking Xanax?

What concerns life insurance companies the most about your Xanax prescription is that Xanax belongs to a group of drugs called benzodiazepines which are used to treat:

Or in other words, Xanax treats a wide range of medical conditions.

Questions insurance companies will ask about your Xanax prescription

Insurance companies are going to want to know why you were prescribed Xanax before they’ll be willing to make any decisions regarding your life insurance application. 

They may ask questions like:

  • Why have you been prescribed Xanax?
  • At what age were you originally diagnosed?
  • Who prescribed your Xanax, your primary care physician or a psychiatrist?
  • Has your prescription changed over time?
  • How successful has your treatment been?
  • Do you anticipate taking Xanax indefinitely?
  • Have you ever been hospitalized for your condition?
  • Are you currently working?
  • Are you currently or have you in the past 12 months received any type of disability benefits?
  • Have you ever considered or attempted suicide?

How you answer these types of questions will go a long way in helping to determine:

  1. Which types of life insurance policies you’ll most likely be able to qualify for.
  2. The rate class you’ll  qualify for.
  3. And which insurance company is most likely to approve your application.

What are your life insurance goals?

After we have a pretty good idea on what you’ll be able to qualify for, it’s always important to factor in what your life insurance goals are.

Are you buying your life insurance to:

  • Protect a spouse and family?
  • Cover the cost of a mortgage?
  • Finance a business?
  • Protect an estate from taxes?
  • Or maybe just cover the cost of a burial?

Knowing why you’re buying your life insurance coupled with what type you can qualify for will go a long way in helping an agent narrow down your life insurance options.
