A Quicker Path to Coverage: Life Insurance with No Medical Exam

If you're like many, you may think purchasing life insurance requires full underwriting — a process that involves a lot of paperwork and medical tests to assess the eligibility and risk of an applicant. While this is one way to obtain coverage, it isn't your only option. There is a much simpler path to getting life insurance.

Life Insurance with Simplified Underwriting

There are life insurance policies that don't require a visit to the doctor, lab work, or a great deal of paperwork — this is often referred to as "no medical exam" life insurance. Usually, you only need to answer a few short yes or no questions and provide some basic health information when applying. This process is called simplified underwriting.
