Life Insurance

Insurers will evaluate specific criteria when underwriting applications for Coronary Angioplasty life insurance, like:

  1. When you had your Coronary Angioplasty
  2. Number of arteries affected
  3. Condition of your arteries
  4. Severity of your condition
  5. Additional medical complications
  6. Age
  7. General health and lifestyle
  8. Medications being taken

Before undergoing Coronary Angioplasty surgery, your insurer may request a medical report from your GP to assess your current health status and pre-procedure condition. Individuals with preexisting health conditions may be presented with life insurance options that have higher premiums.

Critical Illness

Critical illness cover may be an option for you after undergoing Coronary Angioplasty surgery, depending on your specific situation. The extent of coverage will be determined by any post-surgery complications and their effects on your overall health and lifestyle.

Applications for critical illness cover may have stricter requirements compared to applications for life insurance. An insurer may request to review medical records regarding your Coronary Angioplasty procedure. If your symptoms are considered more severe, you may receive customized coverage with non-standard terms tailored to your specific situation. Individuals who have undergone surgery without complications, maintain a healthy lifestyle unaffected by their condition, may qualify for coverage at a standard rate.

Income Protection

If you have undergone a Coronary Angioplasty procedure, it is unlikely that you will qualify for standard personal income protection terms. This is because insurers may view you as a higher risk, considering your condition and the potential need for extended time off work for health reasons.

Income protection options may be available for those who are self-employed or own their own company.
