The most recent figures from the National Center for Health Statistics show that 18.6 million American adults (that’s one in 12) suffers from asthma, If you’re one of them, buying Life insurance can be costly — depending on the severity of your condition and your reaction to treatment.
However, asthmatics with a good track record of controlling their symptoms can have a near normal life expectancy. So, if it’s been more than two or three years since your asthma led to an ER visit and your condition hasn’t caused you to miss work, you shouldn’t have much trouble getting Life coverage at or near a “standard” premium. Before you apply for coverage, it makes sense to:
- Have your physician monitor your condition at least twice a year.
- Follow the medications the physician prescribes.
- List these medications on your insurance application.
- Provide a comprehensive medical history for the application.
- If you’re a smoker, kick the habit!
