Burial Insurance for People with Atrial Fibrillation – Get the Facts Here

Share this Content:

According to the CDC between 2.7 million and 6.7 million people in the United States suffer from a cardiac condition known as Atrial Fibrillation. It is the most common type of heart arrhythmia.

Atrial fibrillation is often referred to as A-Fib. A-Fib causes irregular heartbeats A-Fib is associated with several risk factors.

It can even develop simply because you are aging. For most people with atrial fibrillation their doctors prescribe a medication that helps to control their heart rhythms.

Atrial fibrillation causes real trouble for people who are trying to buy burial insurance. The insurance companies see the diagnosis of A-Fib on your medical records and they either refuse to insure you or they offer you insurance at rates that you cannot afford.

It is very frustrating to know that you need burial insurance so that your family is not burdened when you pass, and be unable to find coverage that you can afford.

There is an answer to this problem. A diagnosis of A-Fib does not mean that you are never going to be able to find burial insurance.

Why Do Insurance Companies Charge More for or Refuse Insurance to People with A-Fib?

A-Fib is not the real problem as far as the insurance company is concerned. The insurance company knows that A-Fib can be an underlying cause to other conditions like strokes and heart attacks.

They also know that people who have been diagnosed with A-Fib often have other serious medical conditions.

Insurance companies do not want to take a risk of losing money. They want to insure people who are going to pay their premiums and not cost the insurance company.

They are happiest with really healthy people who will pay premiums for many years before the insurance company has to pay the coverage amount named in the burial insurance policy.

People with serious heart conditions, like A-Fib, or heart failure are people who could die before the insurance company makes enough money off of their premiums to make the final payment not cost them money.

Looking for the Right Coverage

You know by now that the best way to shop for things like insurance coverage is to compare several offers. You weigh the pros and cons of each policy, and then you can decide which policy is best for you.

Looking for insurance is a hassle. There is just no other way to put it. You either call the insurance company, or you visit their website.

Then you answer a multitude of questions. Finally, you give the company your phone number and email address, and they promise to get back with you when they have your quote ready.

You wait hours, or days, to hear back from each of the companies you have spoken to.

The insurance companies either get in touch with you and tell you that they cannot offer you any coverage, or they offer you coverage that is less than you want at a price that is more than you are willing to pay.

Prepare to Look for Insurance

Most people do not know that insurance companies often ask trick questions in an effort to get people to reveal something about their medical history.

They may ask you if you have any cardiac issues, but they may slip the question about cardiac issues in via other questions.

Some of the medical questions used by insurance companies to uncover A-Fib are:

  • Have you ever had rapid heartbeats?
  • Have you ever had a stroke?
  • Have you ever had a heart attack?

These questions by themselves cannot cause the insurance company to believe you have atrial fibrillation, but questions like these, and the list of medications you take, can cause them to believe it.

You have to be prepared for the medical questions, and the tricky medical questions when you are searching for insurance.

You have to tell the truth about your health conditions or the insurance policy will not be honored when you pass. You cannot hide an illness like A-Fib, but you can answer the questions carefully so the agency will offer you better plans.

Your Medicine Reveals a Lot about Your Health

The medication that you take tells an insurance company or medical professional a lot about your current health issues and possible future health issues.

If you take some medications the insurance company will automatically consider you to be an -Fib patient. These medicines include:

  • Amiodarone (Cordarone or Pacerone)
  • Digitek
  • Digoxin
  • Dofetilide
  • Flecainide (Tambocor)
  • Lanoxicaps
  • Lanoxin
  • Propafenone (Rythmol)
  • Quinidine (Various)
  • Sotalol (Betapace)
  • Warfarin

Insurance companies may tell you that you do not have to see a doctor or get a physical to get coverage.

That is because they are going to take your answers to what medicine you take, and what health issues you have, and they are then going to make up their own mind on whether or not they think you suffer from a serious condition like A-Fib.

Even if you take none of those medications, the fact that you take a high blood pressure medication can often cause insurance agents to be suspicious of your health answers.
