I recently applied for a 100,000 whole life insurance policy via the National Education Association. They took a home blood test and did the usual questions. I waited a week and just got my rejection letter. It stated your request for life insurance is rejected based on your type 1 diabetes since 1972. O.K. Let's stack my vitals with other 48 year olds. I do not smoke. I have excellent a1c levels my entire life. I have no history of CA in my family. I have excellent blood presssure and very good cholesterol. Yet I am rejected. I will of course fight this rejection. In the past I had a similar experience and fought a rejection and after my Dr. challenged the previous rejection with a different insurer based on trace protein..I was accepted. I hope this goes the same. Does anyone have any insight into this life insurance world? I am married with one child and have a steady career and take extreely good care of myself. What is the deal? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated on others experiences with diabetes and life insurance. Thank You!
