Now we’ll be the first to admit that we don’t often have folks give us a call asking if their Zymar (gatifloxacin) prescription is going to affect their life insurance application. But we have had a few folks ask, which is why we figured we’d just take a moment here in the article to discuss whether or not taking Zymar will affect your life insurance application outcome.
About Zymar (gatifloxacin).
Zymar (gatifloxacin) is an antibiotic used to treat eye infections caused by bacteria. Zymar kills sensitive bacteria by stopping the production of essential proteins needed by the bacteria to survive.
Now while many medications can be used for other reasons other than the typical prescribed purpose, in general, what you’re going to find is that Zymar is used to treat relatively mild infections of the eye, which is why insurance companies aren’t going to be all that concerned about your prescription.
Now as you can see…
Since Zymar isn’t going to be prescribed for any conditions that would be deemed “life threatening” of potentially “dangerous” most if not all life insurance companies are simply going to “look past” your Zymar prescription and being looking at other factors that could potentially play a role in the outcome of your life insurance application.
If an insurance company isn’t going to be interested in your Zymar prescription, it only makes sense to take a moment or two to discuss what an insurance company will actually be interested in. The best way we’ve found to learn more about what insurance companies are interested in is to simply take a look at some of the most commonly asked questions asked on a life insurance application.
Common questions you’ll find on many life insurance applications.
- How old are you?
- What is your current height and weight?
- Have you been diagnosed with any previous pre-existing medical conditions?
- Have you ever suffered from a heart attack, stroke, cancer or diabetes?
- Has any of your immediate family members ever been diagnosed with cancer, heart disease, stroke or diabetes?
- Are you taking any prescription medications other than Zymar?
- In the past 12 months have you used any tobacco or nicotine products?
- In the past 12 months have you used any marijuana products?
- Do you have any issues with your driving record, such as a suspended license, multiple moving violations or a DUI?
- Have you ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor?
- Do you have any set plans to travel outside of the United States in the next 2 years?
- Do you participate in any dangerous activities such as rock climbing, hang gliding, or sky diving?
- Are you currently working now?
- In the past 12 months have you applied for or received any form of disability benefits?
From here the insurance companies are generally going to have a pretty good idea about what “types” of life insurance policies you will and won’t be eligible for, as well as have a pretty good idea about what “rate” class you’ll qualify for.
Here at TermLife2Go, assuming that you would be eligible, we also like to take a moment to look as some of the “newer” no medical exam life insurance options that are currently being offered by some of the best life insurance companies out there.
We particularly like to recommend these products to those who are healthy and don’t have an existing life insurance policy in place. No medical exam life insurance policies can go inforce in less than 24 hours which is a huge advantage over those policies that will require a medical exam and may take weeks if not months to go into force.
