Coarctation of the Aorta Life Insurance
If you have been diagnosed with Coarctation of the Aorta, knowing where to look to find the best life insurance option may feel overwhelming.
Coarctation of the Aorta is typically a congenital condition (present from birth) where part of the Aortic Artery is narrower than normal, the condition means the heart has to work harder to pump blood around the body.
Coarctation of the Aorta is often diagnosed early on and can often be treated with surgery. Although this does reduce the risk of complications, it’s likely an individual will need ongoing monitoring for the condition.
An older individual with Coarctation of the Aorta may experience symptoms such as:
- Chest Pain
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Leg Cramps
- Muscle Weakness
Getting Life Insurance if you have Coarctation of the Aorta
Without treatment, Coarctation of the Aorta can have some severe complications, such as:
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Heart Failure
- Brain Aneurysm
- Aortic tear or rupture
It is due to these risk factors that Life Insurance providers will act on the side of caution when underwriting an application.
When applying for Life Insurance, the underwriters will need to assess the severity of your condition. You will be asked a number of questions surrounding your past medical history; when you were diagnosed, what treatment you’ve had and if you experience symptoms to help them gain a clearer picture. And the outcome of your application will very much depend on the severity of your condition.
As underwriting rules vary from provider to provider, knowing where to look to obtain the most suitable cover at the best price can be difficult.
