#1 Can I still get burial insurance with a COPD diagnosis?

The good news is yes! Here at Senior Legacy we can still get you qualified for burial/life insurance even after being diagnosed with COPD. Call us or fill out our brief form here on site and we’ll get to work for you on a policy that will cover you regardless of how bad your condition is.

#2 Will I have to visit a medical facility?

No you will not have to visit a Dr Office or any other type of medical facility. We can get you insured without you ever having to leave the comfort of your home. Final expense life insurance or what is commonly referred to as burial insurance doesn’t’ require a doctor’s visit.

#3 Will a Doctor or Nurse have to visit me at my residence?

No, we nor our Insurance Carriers will be sending any medical professionals to your home for any testing or physical types of checks on you. You do not have to give blood, take a physical, run or walk on a tread mill, or do a breathing test. Everything can be done with a simple phone call to our agency.

#4 If I buy a burial insurance policy from you, will my rates go up over time?

No! If we sign you up with a policy from any of our carriers the payments are referred to as “level”. Meaning that the payments never change over the life of the policy. They do not increase with time no matter how long you live. Nor do they decrease. They simply never change. This makes budgeting for them easier which is important.

#5 Does my coverage go down if my COPD worsens?

No. The dollar amount of your coverage never decreases under any circumstances. EXAMPLE: If you take out a $10,000 burial policy and hold it for 4 years then pass away. The policy pays $10,000 to your assigned beneficiary to apply to your final expenses including burial costs. So the answer is an emphatic no. Your benefits never decrease regardless of your health.

#6 If I’m diagnosed with a new ailment other than COPD such as lung cancer will that cause my payment to go up?

No, once your policy is in place  the insurance carrier cannot come back and charge you more money just because you’ve gotten older or developed a new condition in addition to having COPD. Your payments will never go up, and your coverage will never go down due to anything related to your health or lifestyle.

#7 Can I get Burial/Life Insurance Coverage if I’m on oxygen?

Yes, it’s not uncommon for people suffering from COPD to be prescribed oxygen. And we have carriers that cover people that are on oxygen therapy.

#8 Can I wait to get coverage and get a better deal?

In all likelihood no. COPD does not go away, it’s a permanent condition. If you have new medicines prescribed or are diagnosed with a more severe stage of COPD than your initial diagnosis you could see any newly quoted rates higher than you initially received. Or an example might be if you’re Dr prescribes oxygen whereas before your condition was not severe enough to need it you would almost be guaranteed to have a higher premium than the initial quote before you were prescribed oxygen.

#9 What happens if I stop making my payments on my policy?

When payments stop the policy is canceled. Like all things in life we only get what we pay for.
