For individual’s that suffer from sleep apnea, life insurance may seem at first to be unattainable. Fortunately, for those looking for life insurance with sleep apnea you have come to the right place. Sleep apnea is a very common disorder.

According to the National Sleep Foundation this condition affects over 18 million Americans.

We understand the difficulties of finding affordable life insurance with sleep apnea. We know which companies specialize in underwriting the best life insurance with sleep apnea.

When underwriting life insurance with sleep apnea, it is first important to get as much medical information up front from the insured. It is best to be totally honest about your medical history. The more information we can give to the underwriter’s the better rate you possible can secure.

We want the life insurance underwriter’s to compete for your business.

By gathering this information up front it allows us to do the legwork and save you time. This also keeps you from having to initially go thru a medical exam and bloodwork.

A medical exam may be necessary down the road, but first we just want to see if a viable offer is available.

By gathering this information up front, it also allows us to keep your information out of the Medical Information Bureau (MIB).

When all the information is gathered, we will speak to the different carriers.  Once we get the feedback from the underwriters  we will then know if an offer can be made. We will run the premium rates to see if this tentative offer is affordable to you.

If the tentative offer is something the client feels comfortable with, we will then proceed to take a formal application and have any requirements completed to secure the offer.
