Going to the doctor’s office for a physical exam is a typical procedure to undergo before receiving most insurance policies.
Visits to the doctor’s office are usually slow and painful processes.
Not to mention that the processing times of many labs that are used by doctor’s is at least a few days.
It is for these reasons that is goes without saying that a medical exam can be extremely time consuming and costly.
Fortunately there is a life insurance policy that does not require a medical exam.
A no medical exam policy is far less time consuming and is a great option for those who are in need of a quick policy. It is especially appealing to someone who may fear that may have a new illness that will be uncovered in a medical exam.
These types of insurance are very unique and are therefore not best suited for everyone. It is for this reason that someone considering this type of insurance knows all of the pros and cons associated with it.
There really is not a whole lot of difference between a regular term life policy and a no medical exam policy. Both policies are similar in structure in that there is a beneficiary that receives the money after a claim if the policy specifications are met. One guideline that stretches across almost every type of policy is that the policy holder’s death must be within the time period of the policy.
When it comes to life insurance, every individual is different, and what may be best for one person may not necessarily be best for another. Something that should be considered with a no medical exam is the additional cost associated with the premium. Life insurance companies charge more for the premium when they take on additional risk.
Usually a medical exam is a way of mitigating a lot of the risk but since there is no medical exam they have to find ways to compensate. Additionally, they consider other factors that may not be otherwise considered with a standard life insurance policy such as lifestyle and age. The benefit that comes with the additional cost though is guaranteed coverage as well as the convenience of immediate coverage.
The no exam life insurance market place has really taken off over the last few years and I don’t expect it to slow down at all. While there are definitely some carriers to avoid (they won’t be listed here) some of the top companies all offer stellar products. I thought the best way to break it down is to list then in order of speed and price.
Most people that want to avoid the life insurance physical do so because they need it quick. Just because it’s fast, does not mean you shouldn’t overpay for it. Below you’ll see a quick review of some of the top insurance companies that do not require an exam and a sample table in how much they compare in cost.

If you take the exam, then the whole policy would cover you for anything. They hybrid policy is also attractive as they will offer up to $1,000,000 of insurance.
