In this article, we will explore your burial insurance options if you have blood clots and how to get the most affordable plan.

FOR EASIER NAVIGATION:


WHAT IS MY BEST INSURANCE OPTION IF I HAVE A HISTORY OF BLOOD CLOTS?


BLOOD CLOT TREATMENT WITH MEDICATIONS

If your blood clot was treated with medications only, and depending on when (or if) you were hospitalized, and if there was no stroke, you would qualify for first-day coverage with some insurance companies.

Best Option: Level death benefit plan with first-day coverage


BLOOD CLOT TREATMENT OVER TWO YEARS AGO

If your blood clot was treated surgically with a clot-buster (catheter-directed thrombolysis) or thrombectomy (surgical removal of a clot), you could still qualify for burial insurance depending on the date of your last treatment.

The more time has passed since your surgical thrombectomy, the better the insurance option you have. You have the best insurance options available if your surgical thrombectomy was over two years ago.

Most final expense insurance companies only look back two years on circulatory surgery. If this is your case, you will qualify for first-day coverage with any final expense insurance company.

Almost every burial insurance or final expense insurance company will offer you their best plan with no waiting period and the lowest price two years after a circulatory surgery. At this point, you will be considered as though you never had a thrombectomy from an underwriting perspective.

Best Option: Level death benefit plan with first-day coverage


TREATMENT OVER ONE YEAR BUT WITHIN THE LAST 24 MONTHS

If your blood clot treatment is over one year, but within the last 24 months, you will qualify for a first-day benefit plan.

You will be covered from the first day, and your death benefit will be phased in over time.

Best Options: First-day benefit plan


BLOOD CLOT TREATMENT WITHIN THE LAST 12 MONTHS

Thrombectomy is considered a circulatory surgery. If you have had a thrombectomy in the last 12 months, you may need to answer “yes” to the circulatory surgery question.

Every life insurance company looks negatively on any recent circulatory surgery for their level death benefit plan with first-day coverage.

Due to your recent circulatory surgery, you will be placed in a higher risk category, and you will only qualify for a guaranteed issue burial insurance.

A guaranteed issue policy (also called guaranteed acceptance life insurance) does not require a medical exam and does not ask any health questions. There is no prescription history check, MIB file check, or underwriting, and you will be approved for insurance coverage regardless of your health.

The guaranteed issue life insurance comes with a graded benefit for the first two years of the policy. This waiting period applies to the natural cause of death.

If you die during the waiting period, your beneficiary will not receive the full death benefit. Your beneficiary will only receive all the premiums you paid into the policy plus 7-10% interest.

You will need to live for the first two years before the company will pay for the natural or non-accidental cause of death. But, if you die from an accident even during the waiting period, your beneficiary will receive a 100% death benefit.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue burial insurance

IF I HAVE BLOOD CLOT, DO I NEED A MEDICAL EXAM TO QUALIFY FOR BURIAL INSURANCE?

You are NOT required to take a medical exam to qualify for burial insurance with a blood clot.

When you apply for burial insurance, you only have to answer some basic questions about your health. The application process is simple; you don’t need to provide medical records or blood and urine samples.

You’ll get the official approval from the insurance company often within minutes!


BURIAL INSURANCE UNDERWRITING IF YOU HAVE A BLOOD CLOT

If you want to get the lowest life insurance premium, we recommend applying for a plan that asks some medical questions.

The primary purpose of underwriting (asking health questions) is to know what plan you will qualify for and the amount of your premium if your application is approved.

Burial insurance companies have two ways of underwriting:

FIRST – They may ask you a series of health questions. Your answers to their questions will determine your eligibility.

SECOND – They will electronically review your prescription history to verify your health.


HEALTH QUESTIONS:

Most of the time, burial insurance companies never even directly ask about blood clots in the health questionnaire. You will rarely see it asked on a final expense or burial insurance application.

Insurance companies will only ask about specific medical conditions that they care about. The company will gladly accept your health issue if they don’t ask about it on their health questionnaire.

You will only have an issue with blood clots if you have undergone a recent thrombectomy to treat a blood clot. Blood clot treatments are considered circulatory surgery, and every life insurance company asks about it in their health questionnaire.

  • During the past 24 months, have you been diagnosed with a stroke, chest pain, aneurysm, heart attack, or heart or circulatory surgery?
  • During the past 24 months, have you been diagnosed as having or been hospitalized for stroke, angina, congestive heart failure, heart or circulatory surgery, or any procedure to improve circulation to the heart or brain?
  • Within the past 2 years, have you had or been diagnosed with angina, heart attack, cardiomyopathy, or any type of heart or circulatory surgery?

If you have had any blood clot treatment, you may need to answer “yes” to the circulatory surgery question.


PRESCRIPTION HISTORY CHECK

Aside from the health question, a prescription history check will be conducted to verify your health. The company will see the type of medications you take and for what conditions.

If you have a blood clot or emboli, your doctor may prescribe any of these anticoagulants or blood thinners:

  • Apixaban (Eliquis)
  • Clopidogrel (Plavix)
  • Dipyridamole (Persantine)
  • Dabigatran (Pradaxa)
  • Enoxaparin (Lovenox)
  • Edoxaban (Savaysa)
  • Fondaparinux (Arixtra)
  • Heparin (Fragmin, Innohep, and Lovenox)
  • Rivaroxaban (Xarelto)
  • Ticlopidine (Ticlid)
  • Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)

If you take any of these blood thinners, some final expense insurance companies will consider you a high-risk applicant because these drugs are also used to treat stroke and heart attack.

The good news is that we work with insurance companies that don’t care that you use these drugs to prevent or treat blood clots.

If you are taking any of these blood thinners as a maintenance medication, most insurance companies will look at your health favorably because these medications prevent health problems in the future.

For the most part, blood clots are generally a non-issue with most insurance companies. We can help you qualify for the best plan with the lowest rate, even if you have had a pulmonary embolism.


HOW MUCH INSURANCE DO I NEED IF I HAVE BLOOD CLOT?

The amount of burial insurance you should buy varies depending on your personal and financial circumstances. However, burial insurance should cover the cost of your funeral, burial, and final expenses.

The first step to figuring out how much burial insurance you need is to know your end-of-life expenses. Your funeral cost is often the biggest single expense you need to pay. Other end-of-life expenses to consider are your outstanding medical bills, living expenses, credit card bills, and other debts.

Here’s an example of a funeral cost breakdown from the National Funeral Directors Association.

AVERAGE FUNERAL COST WITH VIEWING AND BURIAL
Non-declinable basic services$2,300
Removal/ transfer of remains to funeral home$350
Embalming & preparation of the body$1,050

HOW SHOULD I PAY MY PREMIUMS?

The best way to pay your premium is through a savings or checking account. We recommend you set a bank draft from your savings or checking account. That way, the bank will automatically pay your premium each month, and you don’t need to worry about your policy lapsing due to non-payment.


BLOOD CLOT AND BURIAL INSURANCE RIDERS

Insurance policy riders add benefits to your policy. Adding insurance riders will enhance your policy to fit your needs. Some riders are built into your policy, while others can be added at an additional cost. Most riders are affordable, and it involves little to no underwriting.

Here’s a list of common burial insurance riders:
