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

If you have any of these types of paralysis, you can still be eligible for life insurance.

  1. Monoplegia – affects one arm or leg
  2. Hemiplegia – a paralysis that affects one arm and one leg on the same side of the body
  3. Diplegia – affects the same area on both sides of the body
  4. Paraplegia – affects both of the legs
  5. Quadriplegia or tetraplegia – affects both arms and both legs


FACTORS THAT MAY AFFECT LIFE INSURANCE ELIGIBILITY IF YOU HAVE PARALYSIS

ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING

Paralysis can affect mobility and may require you to need help with the activities of daily living. Almost all burial insurance companies will ask about ADL’s on their life insurance application.

There are six (ADL) activities of daily living used by life insurance companies to determine if you will qualify for a first-day coverage plan. You must be able to perform these activities on your own to be eligible for the lowest rate.

  1. Eating – the act of putting food into your body using a cup, plate, intravenously or feeding tube.
  2. Bathing – washing your entire body in a shower or bathtub, also with your ability to get in and out of the bath or shower on your own.
  3. Dressing – taking off and putting items of clothing on your body. Dressing also includes taking off and putting on braces, fasteners, and artificial limbs.
  4. Toileting – doing necessary personal hygiene and getting on and off the toilet.
  5. Transferring – moving in or out of a chair, bed, or wheelchair.
  6. Continence – controlling the bladder and bowel functions. It also includes performing related personal hygiene tasks like caring for a colostomy or catheter bag.

The most severe case of paraplegia, hemiplegia, and quadriplegia that need assistance in performing activities of daily living will only qualify for a guaranteed issue burial insurance.

You will be accepted for guaranteed acceptance life insurance no matter how mild or severe your paralysis. You don’t need to take a medical exam or answer any health questions to be eligible for coverage.

If you have paralysis, you can quickly get this plan. The minimum age requirement is 50 to 85. If you’re a U.S. citizen, you qualify on the age requirement, and you live in a state where guaranteed issue insurance is available, you will be eligible for this policy.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue burial insurance


HOME HEALTH CARE

It’s very common for paralysis patients to need home health care temporarily or permanently. Either way and just like activities of daily living, every final expense insurance company will specifically ask about home health care.

If you are currently receiving home health care because of your condition, most carriers will offer you guaranteed issue life insurance.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue burial insurance


WHEELCHAIR USE

When it comes to wheelchair use, the important factor that affects insurance eligibility is if you can still perform the activities of daily living on your own.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue burial insurance


WHEELCHAIR USE BUT NEEDS HELP WITH ADL’S

If you are a wheelchair user because of an accident and you don’t have a chronic disease but need help with ADL’s, your options are limited. If you fall under this category, you cannot avoid paying a little bit more and having a waiting period.

Your best option is to get a guaranteed issue of burial insurance that is priced well.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue burial insurance


TEMPORARY WHEELCHAIR USE

If you use a wheelchair because of temporary paralysis from an injury or accident, you may qualify for immediate coverage.

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


WHY DO YOU NEED GUARANTEED ISSUE BURIAL INSURANCE IF YOU HAVE SEVERE PARALYSIS?

We recommend buying a guaranteed final expense insurance plan if you have severe paralysis because it’s the only plan for which you will qualify. If you are relatively healthy, you can have an average life expectancy despite your condition and you can outlive the two-year waiting period.

Buying a guaranteed issue policy may mean you will have to wait two years before you are fully covered for the natural cause of death. However, if you buy a plan now, you start working on the waiting period immediately, and whatever happens to your health you will be covered.

Your health may get worse at any moment, and you could develop other health problems like diabetes or hypertension. Postponing your application for coverage is not a wise decision.

A guaranteed issue policy may be a little more expensive than plans with a level death benefit, but your approval is guaranteed. Buying a guaranteed issue plan if you have paralysis is worth it, you won’t lose money with this plan, and it cost much less than having no insurance coverage at all.

IF I HAVE PARALYSIS, 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 paralysis.

When you apply for burial insurance without being paralyzed, you only have to answer some basic questions about your health. Guaranteed issue whole life insurance is easy to apply for, and 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 PARALYSIS

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:

  • Do you have paralysis of two or more extremities?
  • Do you require a wheelchair due to a chronic illness or disease, or do you require assistance from anyone with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, and transferring?
  • Do you have any impairment, whether physical or mental, for which you need to receive assistance or supervision in performing normal activities of daily living such as eating, dressing, bathing, incontinence, toileting, or moving without any type of physical assistance?

Only a handful of insurance companies will specifically ask about paralysis. Almost all insurance companies will ask if you can do activities of daily living on your own. They will also ask about home health care and wheelchair use.


HOW MUCH INSURANCE DO I NEED IF I HAVE PARALYSIS?

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
