Spiriva is one of those medications that when we encounter it, we always need to take a step back and learn a little bit more about the pre-existing condition that warranted its prescription, before we can make any type of accurate prediction about what it will and won’t do to the outcome of an applicant’s application.

You see…

Spiriva can be used to treat a wide variety of symptoms and conditions.  Some of which won’t be an issue for an insurance underwriter, while other particularly combined with other health factors could lead to one being denied life insurance all together!

About Spririva:

Spiriva (tiotropium) is a prescription bronchodilator that helps relax muscles in the airways and helps increase air flow in and out of the lungs.  Spiriva will commonly be used to prevent bronchospasm (the narrowing of airways within the lungs) in folks who are suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including bronchitis and emphysema.

So whatcha got?

Since Spiriva is commonly prescribed to folks who suffer from COPD, bronchitis and emphysema, insurance companies are going to want to learn more about:

  • Why you’ve been prescribed Spiriva.
  • And how severe is that condition?

To accomplish this, what you’ll generally find is that insurance companies will typically ask questions such as:

  • Why have you been prescribed Spiriva?
  • When were you prescribed Spiriva?
  • Are you taking any other prescription medications?
  • In the past 12 months have you used any tobacco or nicotine products?
  • In the past 12 months have you used any marijuana products?
  • What is your current height and weight?
  • Have you ever been hospitalized for your condition?
  • In the past 2 years have you needed to visit the emergency room due to your condition?
  • Are you currently working now?
  • In the past 12 months have you applied for or received any form of disability benefits?

Now depending how you answer these questions, the insurance companies will be able to get a pretty accurate picture about your overall health and be able to determine what “types” of life insurance policies you’ll most likely be able to qualify for.

In addition…

Some insurance companies may decide that you “may” be an acceptable risk for insurance provided that they can learn a little bit more about your condition in which case they may request copies of your medical records for review.  Which in our opinion, is always a good sign because it means that they haven’t simply decided to… not insure!
