WHAT IS MY BEST INSURANCE OPTION IF I HAVE A HISTORY OF LIVER DISEASE?

Liver disease is a general term that covers all illnesses that cause the liver to fail to perform its functions within the body. There are more than 100 different types of liver disease, all of which have significant health risks associated with them.

Here are the most common liver diseases and the best policy options you will qualify for:

FATTY LIVER

Fatty liver disease or hepatic steatosis means extra fat in your liver. It is typically caused by heavy alcohol drinking, but you can also get it even if you don’t drink alcohol too much.

You may qualify for the first-day benefits if you have simple fatty liver or non-alcoholic liver disease.

Best Option: First-day benefits


HEPATITIS A

Hepatitis A is a liver inflammation caused by the hepatitis A virus. It is usually a short-term infection that doesn’t become chronic. There is a vaccine that can prevent Hepatitis A.

If you have Hepatitis A, you can qualify for a level death benefit plan with first-day coverage.

Best Option: Level death benefit with first-day coverage


HEPATITIS B

Hepatitis B is caused by the Hepatitis B virus. This disease usually begins as a short-term acute infection, but in some cases, the virus remains in the body, causing chronic liver problems.

If you suffer from Hepatitis B, are still infected, or currently undergoing treatment, you can qualify for level death benefit with some companies.

Best Option: Level death benefit with first-day coverage


HEPATITIS C

Hepatitis C is a liver infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus. It is usually a short-term infection but may become chronic when the virus remains in the body.

If you’re undergoing treatment or cured of Hepatitis C, you will qualify for a level death benefit plan with no waiting period.

Best Option: Level death benefit with first-day coverage


LIVER CIRRHOSIS

Cirrhosis of the liver is a late stage of fibrosis or liver scarring caused by chronic alcoholism, hepatitis, cystic fibrosis, fat accumulation in the liver, destruction of the bile ducts, and medications.

Having liver cirrhosis will not disqualify you from buying final expense insurance.

Best Option: First-day benefits (Hybrid coverage)


LIVER CANCER

If you’re diagnosed with liver cancer and have been in remission for two years or longer, you may qualify for the best plan.

Best Option: Level death benefit with first-day coverage

If your cancer is cured and you are no longer under treatment, we can help you qualify for first-day benefits.

Best Option: First-day benefits (Hybrid coverage)


LIVER TRANSPLANT

Every life insurance company ask about liver transplant in the health questionnaire. If you have had a liver transplant in the past, you qualify for guaranteed issue life insurance with a 2-year waiting period.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue life insurance

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


BURIAL INSURANCE UNDERWRITING IF YOU HAVE LIVER DISEASE

Burial insurance companies will ask about liver disease in different ways.

They will often ask if you ever have a liver disease at any point in your life. They will also ask if you have or you’ve been treated for liver disease within a certain number of years.

Here are some examples of how burial companies ask about liver disease in their health questions:

  • Have you ever had or been treated for any liver disease?
  • Have you ever had or been treated for liver disease within the last 24 months?

Here are some of the illnesses insurance companies associate with liver disease:

  • Alcohol-related liver disease
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Hepatitis A, B, C
  • Hemochromatosis
  • Biliary atresia
  • Cirrhosis
  • Benign liver tumors
  • Liver cancer
  • Epstein Barr virus

If you have any form of liver disease, you need to answer “yes” to the liver disease question.

Insurance companies care most about liver diseases like hepatitis C, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer. If you have any of these conditions, you will only qualify for guaranteed issuer life insurance.

HOW MUCH INSURANCE DO I NEED IF I HAVE LIVER DISEASE?

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

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.


LIVER DISEASE AND BURIAL INSURANCE RIDERS

You may have the option to add a policy rider(s) to your basic policy. Insurance riders add benefits to your policy. Adding insurance riders can enhance your policy to fit your specific needs.

Some riders can be added to your policy without additional cost. However, some riders come with some extra costs. Don’t worry; riders are affordable and involve little to no underwriting.
