Getting Life Insurance with High Cholesterol

This means there are plenty of companies that will approve you, and some can even be found which might even give you a better rating if your cholesterol numbers are not too significantly out of whack.

Cholesterol Comparisons between Different Life Insurance Companies

To show you that not all life insurance companies are not the same when it comes to how they rate people applying for life insurance, and may have cholesterol issues, I performed a spot review of the underwriting requirements which are used.

Let’s see how they compare.

Genworth Life Insurance Company

Cholesterol – Preferred Best –No Tobacco Rating – Ages 0 -60

Underwriting Requirements – An underwriting review is required is the cholesterol is lower than 150 or greater than 350 mg/dl.

Cholesterol/HDL ratio cannot exceed 4.0 for females and 4.5 for males

ING Life Insurance Company

Cholesterol – Super Preferred Non Smoker – Ages 16 -60

Underwriting Requirements – Maximum cholesterol is 300, with a HDL for a male of 75 and a HDL for a female of 90.

The maximum HDL ratio for males is 5.0 and for females is 4.5

North American Life Insurance Company

Cholesterol – Super Preferred No Tobacco – Age 70 and Under

Underwriting Requirements – Has a Cholesterol count with or without treatment of 220 or less, with a total cholesterol/HDL ratio of 4.5 or less (applicable to both genders)

Protective Life Insurance Company

Cholesterol – Select Preferred – To Age 70

Underwriting Requirements – Total cholesterol is not greater than 275 including treated cholesterol and cholesterol/HDL ratios are 4.5 or less (applicable to both genders)

As you can clearly see, not every life insurance company is the same when it comes to how you a person is viewed when it comes to the issue of cholesterol levels.
