The Facts

You have fibromyalgia and are concerned that you are going to be turned down for life insurance. Although some companies will cause you to jump through a million different hoops the truth of the matter is, 99% of insurance companies care about fibromyalgia. As long as you have no other very serious health conditions the majority of the companies we work with will be able to offer your immediate coverage at some of the best rates on the market the very day you sign up.

The best part, you won’t even need to provide your medical history or go in for any physicals. You simply need to answer a few health questions and be on your merry way.

Underwriting Fibromyalgia

For the most part there are two primary risk factors insurance companies will review to assess your risk level. They will have you fill out a quick health questionnaire and check your prescription history. Your answers to those two items will give the insurance company all of the information they need to know to determine whether or not you’re insurable. It’s that simple.

When it comes to the health questions keep in mind that insurance companies tend to only ask about very high-risk health issues. Luckily for you fibromyalgia is nowhere near being considered a high-risk health issue.

Medication History

As previously stated your medication history will also be looked at. Using your medication prescription history, the insurance company is able to see any red flag prescriptions. These type of red flag prescriptions will help identify any serious health issues you may have.

When it comes to fibromyalgia, there are no drugs that are solely meant for the treatment of fibromyalgia. Lyrica, was the first drug on the market that was approved to treat fibromyalgia however recently has been used to also help with neuropathy and seizure disorders as well.

Fibromyalgia is treated using pain relievers, antidepressants as well as ant-seizure medications. Keep in mind that some burial insurance companies have issues with taking medications for depression or seizures. Luckily for you, we work with multiple companies that do not hold bias towards individuals who struggle with depression or seizure conditions.
