Convenience and Price

The least expensive way to buy life insurance for a person in good health is to qualify for term insurance with a medical exam, i.e., a. above.


Short Term-Gap




Long Term Care




That is because the more thoroughly that the applicants risk category is assessed, the lower the resulting cost is to the insurance company.

The most convenient way to buy a small amount of life insurance is with no medical exam, i.e., b., c., or d. above.

However, 'no exam' is limited to a maximum of $250,000 for a completed online application, $300,000 using our online information form, or $500,000 for Mortgage Term.

Choice b. and c. using our online information form will have rates less than the quicker online application of c., but a. has the lowest rates of all because of the medical exam and more thorough underwriting.

The rates with no medical exam are not the lowest but are reasonable for applicants who qualify for a 'regular' or 'standard' risk classification (about 50% of applicants).

In any case, except for the 'Quick and Easy' online application (c.), the quotes that you get initially may not be the actual premium rate you will be offered after your application is thoroughly examined.

life insurance coverage

Pre-application quotes assume a particular rate class, which may or may not be how you are finally classified after the insurer has reviewed your application, paramedic exam results, medical records, and any other information needed.

The decision of the insurance company is made on an individual basis by the life insurance company alone and is not negotiable by any agent/broker/producer or applicant. No one has a "special deal" or discount for the same policy with the same carrier.

You do not pay us anything. We are paid by the insurance company.

For the same policy from the same insurer, premium prices can not be lower than when applying with our help.
