Life Insurance Applications and Blood Tests

Posted on November 3, 2010 and updated November 3, 2010 in Insurance Types, Life Insurance Canada News, Term Insurance 1 min read

Life insurance companies often require a blood test if the insured applies for a higher face amount or is an older applicant.

The blood test is completed by a health professional who uses a sterile kit and will usually draw two to three tubes of blood, both used for different tests. A urine specimen is also generally collected in addition to the blood test. It’s important the insured prepare himself or herself by doing the following:

1. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for the appointment.

2. Verify if fasting is required.

3. Make sure the authorization slip is signed before a blood sample is taken.

4. Remember that two to three vials (approximately 25 cc) will be drawn.

5. Don’t forget that photo ID is required to confirm identification.
