I have had many clients get approved who have had Barrett’s esophagus.  It’s important to choose the right company and agent to ensure you don’t end up overpaying, or even worse get declined. By knowing the factors that affect life insurance rates, you can shop with confidence and know what to expect.  You can use the instant quote engine on this site to shop for the best rates using this information.  Also, keep in mind underwriting will also look at build, other health conditions and lifestyle.  If you fall into a lower rating category than you anticipate, that is OK, you can still get a policy and ask the life insurance company to re-evaluate your rate once your health has improved.  Also, if you are not sure which rating category you fall into, just get in contact with me by using the contact tab and I can assist you.
