LSM Insurance: Non-Medical Life Insurance Specialists

Posted on May 23, 2010 and updated November 8, 2013 in Insurance Types, Life Insurance Canada News, Non-medical 2 min read

LSM insurance has been providing non-medical life insurance for over 20 years. We work with a variety of carriers that provide insurance solutions for the hard-to-insure.

Approximately 4% of life insurance applications in Canada are declined each year, due to medical or lifestyle issues. This represents over 30,000 applications and over $8 billion a year in face amounts.  Many insurance companies have recognized this expanding market . Humania Assurance,  Equitable Life and La Capitale have all added new no medical life insurance plans and companies like Canada Protection Plan and Assumption are enhancing and refining their plans.  Having a broker who stays on top of industry changes is crucial.

 

LSM insurance can help those hard to insure in a variety of ways:



1. If you’ve already been declined for life insurance, we’ll be able to take a look at your current health history and your past applications to find the best fit for you from either traditional or non-medical life insurance carriers. Non-medical life insurance policies can either be guaranteed issue (no health questions and no medical tests) or simplified issue (no medical tests and only three to 12 health questions)

2. If you have a serious health issue, but have never applied for insurance, we can recommend — or determine — whether a non-medical or a traditional life insurance plan would be best. We often recommend applying for a simplified issue plan initially and then applying for traditional life insurance, once this is in place. If the traditional life insurance plan is approved, the insured can cancel their simplified issue plan. The reason this approach makes sense is, many simplified issue plans ask if the insured has been declined in the last two years.

3. If the insured’s health issues are less severe, we will be able to recommend the best traditional life insurance provider, i.e. many traditional life insurance carriers have different underwriting guidelines and protocols.

@ Sugi – you have a point. Many people are often confused that most No Medical Life policies have health questions just no medical tests. Guaranteed Issue policies have no tests or medical questions but the face amounts are lower and the premiums are higher. They also have a 2 year waiting period on non accidental deaths.

@ Albert. Depending on the severity of the Asthma you could qualify for a traditional life insurance at Standard rates.

@ Sharon. We are happy to help the best premiums will depend on the type of plan and amount of coverage. If you are in good health you would likely be better off with a traditional policy which has health questions and medical tests.

@Tom. Depending on the type plan there are no medical plans available. An example Assumption Life offers a Term 15, Term 20 and Term 25 available without a medical to insureds 18 to 65. They do ask a fully series of health questions. For insured’s with more serious health issues smaller face amount plan with less questions are available.

@ Valine. Thanks for the note. The best type of plan would really depend on the health issue. If they are serious you may want to look at a Simplified Issue plan and than apply subsequently for a traditional life insurance plan.

The term non-medical life insurance is a little confusing, wouldn’t it be clearer to call it examless or no-exam life insurance? Other than that this seems like a useful service for people seeking insurance.

I am 65 while my wife is 66 both non-smokers and in good health. We are both slightly overweight not obese and my wife has elevated blood pressure that is treated successfuly throught medication. How much would $10 000 policies for each of us cost with constant premiums? We are only interested in a small policy for burial expenses.
