The Benefits of Insurance

Why is it so Hard for Diabetics to Get Life Insurance?

It is estimated that over 8 percent of the American population is diabetic. That may not sound like a lot, but it translates to over 25 million people. The American Diabetes Association also estimates that 79 million Americans have prediabetes, some of them undiagnosed. That’s over 104 million people affected by diabetes or prediabetes in our country.

So if this disease affects so many people, why is it so hard for them to find quality life insurance coverage that’s affordable? Unfortunately, some life insurance companies see diabetics as risks rather than people who need insurance protection. Some companies will automatically deny your policy as soon as you inform them that you have diabetes.

At Family Protection Center, we understand that diabetics and prediabetics are people, just like everyone else, who deserve the chance to protect their family’s financial future. Since we offer products from many different insurance companies, we can ensure that you get the coverage you need at a price that works for you. Some of our products offer coverage to anyone, no matter what medical conditions they may have!

So while other companies may turn you down, our licensed agents will work hard to get you a customized policy that meets all of your family’s needs.
