However, with the right preparation, you can often still find a policy that suits your needs. Keep these tips in mind to help you do so:

Prepare before you look

Also, research how different insurers might handle a pre-existing conditions. Some might require medical exams while others won’t, for example. It might help you to narrow down which companies offer the best chances of acceptance.

Compare Policy Options

Ask your insurance agent if you do or do not qualify for certain types of coverage. For example, you might not qualify for certain types of whole life or term life policies. You might not be able to get different riders, exclusions or discounts either. Therefore, your agent can likely help you compare different policies to get the right one.

Other insurers might offer something they call guaranteed acceptance policies. This means you might get automatic coverage despite a pre-existing condition. However, use caution. These policies might cost more for extremely limited coverage, compared to traditional policies.
