DI Success Tips-Common Medical Conditions

When your client has a medical condition, it does not necessarily mean they won’t be considered for Disability Income Insurance. Here are some common medical conditions that can still be covered.

Diabetes — this will require a medical records review. If your client is well-controlled with an A1c of 7.0 or less, on one oral medication, does not have high blood pressure and is at a healthy weight, they should be issued coverage.
