NOTICE: Effective 10/14/2019 Impaired Risk will be moving into a Concierge platform requiring adjustments for case minimums. We will only be able to fully assess a case with expected premiums over $10,000. This is due to our commitment to provide high level service to our agents and ensure each case has the full attention of our team.

If you have a case falling below this limit we have a $50,000 graded benefit guarantee issue policy available. Please see the FAQ below for product information. If you would like a quote for your client on this product please email a Mandatory Initial Questionnaire to the address below.

Expectations

All cases will be fully underwritten by designated carriers and require a Paramed.

Once a form has been submitted a quote request our team will confirm receiving your inquiry within a business day. If you have not heard from us please confirm the email address and resend the form or check your SPAM folder.

An average of 72 hours is the turnaround time for our team to hear from the various carriers about a case. Some questionnaires may require further follow-up and all forms are expected to be completed in full.

All details of an impairment are essential to help us place your client in the best coverage possible for them. Missing health information or personal history can delay an offer or cause a decline.

We are an independent brokerage group established in 1987 with over 140 years of combined experience in Life Insurance. We have practiced and honed the Impaired Risk process to find the best options for your clients with impairments.

No. You do not have to be appointed to submit a quote request. Just complete the Mandatory Initial Questionnaire and any applicable questionnaires, then send to our team’s email address and we will research options for your client. Once a carrier is chosen and an application is completed, you will be appointed with that individual carrier.

Within reason, yes. We take time with each case to communicate with our carriers’ underwriters to discuss your client’s specific situation and find the best carrier for each client’s individual impairments. Anyone with an impairment must be 18 years or older.

Most likely yes, as almost every case with us will need additional information. If your client checked any box on the Initial Questionnaire, we will need follow-up information on correlating questionnaires. For example: A client with high blood pressure will also need the Blood Pressure Questionnaire completed, including all supplementary information on that form.

No. All initial information submitted to us is for quoting purposes only, to see if we can find a carrier to write your client’s case. A carrier application will follow once we find an option to fit your client.

Placing a case for an impaired client is a difficult challenge. We need all possible information for every case so we can find the best carrier for each person. If we lack information and send a quote with a rating, full medical and financial underwriting will ultimately uncover all omitted or misrepresented information. If missing information is pertinent it can lead to a higher rating or even a decline.

We strive for a 72 business-hour turn around. Higher risk clients or those lacking information may take longer for us to receive a reply from the underwriters.

The average case will take 45 days from application submission to underwriting decision. Most applications are electronic. With an application, your client will have a phone interview (in most cases), medical exam, and electronic signatures. The completed application will then be transmitted to the carrier for underwriting. If a case requires an APS or other medical documents, underwriting can take longer depending on the medical facility’s response time.

Yes, for all fully underwritten applications.

Your client will be contacted to complete their interview and exam, then you will hear from our Case Management team for any necessary follow up. Meanwhile, our in-house licensing team will request and process your appointment with the carrier.

Yes. You must give your carrier the first right-of-refusal for any coverage. However, if you have a client who was not declined but falls outside of your carrier’s product portfolio parameters, email us to discuss the options.

Yes. We have a dedicated voicemail and inbox for all agents which is monitored through the day by our team. It is always fastest to reach us via email, but we can also arrange (via email) a phone call at your convenience.
