In the article, Marr explains that clients with such a health record do qualify for insurance — but they must abstain from steroid use for at least a year. Any current users of substances that enhance performance are ineligible for traditional insurance policies. Clients who were using these substances for over a year but who are currently abstinent and have been for less than ten years are most likely looking at up to a 250% policy rating. On the other hand, clients who abused steroids for less than a year and quit more than ten years ago can qualify for standard insurance rates.
