Can you get life insurance if you have some history of heart disease? The answer might surprise you.
Medical science is so cool. A century ago, our average life expectancy was about 50 years. Now add 25 more and we’re up to date. That quarter-century longevity bump is due, in part, to people adapting healthier lifestyles and having access to better medical care. In the 21st century, having a heart attack or a stroke doesn’t have to be a death sentence or permanent disability. In fact, many post-coronary patients can now go on to lead a full and productive life.
Speaking of “life,” (Holy segue, Batman!) now that you’re on the road to recovery, have you considered purchasing life insurance? Has it crossed your mind, but you fear that heart disease could a-fib your chances of finding the coverage you want? Well, I’m here to say that the prognosis for getting affordable life insurance for people with some heart issues is pretty darn good. (You can put away the nitro pills now. False alarm.)
Many people who have had a heart attack, stroke, bypass surgery or other heart-related issues may now be eligible for life insurance. As long as you are staying healthy, watching your cholesterol, taking your meds and seeing your doctor regularly, you can often get quality, affordable coverage that can provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
