Whenever we get a call from someone who is currently using Lisinopril to treat their elevated blood pressure (hypertension), we generally being to ask if the client has been diagnosed with any type of heart disease or if they’ve ever suffered from a heart attack.
Lisinopril is a prescription medication that is categorized as an ACE inhibitor that is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) AND congestive heart failure. Lisinopril has also been show to import the survival rate after they have suffered from a heart attack.
So whatcha got?
If you’re simply using your Lisinopril to lower your blood pressure, without any history of heart disease, you could potentially qualify for a preferred or preferred plus rate.
You’ve been using your Lisinopril for at least 6 months and that it’s been effective in lowing your blood pressure to healthy levels.
Now if you’ve been diagnosed with heart disease…
Or you’ve experienced a heart attack, the severity of diagnosis and your current heath condition will need to be determined prior to understanding what type of life insurance policy you’ll be eligible for and at what rate.
Common questions you’ll likely be asked to determine your current cardiac heath will include:
- How old are you?
- What is your currently height and weight?
- In the past 12 months have you used any type of tobacco or nicotine products?
- What condition have you been diagnosed with?
- Have you suffered from a heart attack? If so how long ago did it occur?
- In the past 12 months have you been hospitalized due to your pre-existing condition?
- How often do you see your primary care physician?
- Was your Lisinopril prescribed to you by your primary care physician or by a cardiologist?
- Have you had a recent EKG? And if so, what were the results?
- Have you had a recent cardiac stress test? And if so, what were the results?
- Are you taking any additional prescription medications in addition to Lisinopril?
- Has any of your immediate family also suffered from heart disease, heart attack or stroke?
- Are you currently working now?
- In the past 12 months have you applied for or received any form of disability benefits?
From there, the insurance companies will generally have enough information to determine if they will need to order medical records from your doctors in order to make a decision on whether or not to move forward with your life insurance application.
