Life Insurance for Viagra (Sildenafil) Users. Everything You Need to Know at a Glance!

Life Insurance for Viagra users.

In this article, we wanted to take a moment and try and answer some of the most common questions we get from folks applying for life insurance after they have been prescribed Viagra or its generic form Sildenafil to treat their erectile dysfunction or ED.

Additionally, Viagra an also be used to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension which is something that a life insurance underwriter will definitely want to rule out prior to making any kind of definitive decision about an individual’s life insurance application.

Questions that will be directly addressed will include:

  • Can I qualify for life insurance after I’ve been prescribed Viagra?
  • Why do life insurance companies care if I’ve been prescribed Viagra?
  • What kind of information will the insurance companies ask me or be interested in?
  • What rate (or price) can I qualify for?
  • What can I do to help ensure that I get the “best life insurance” for me?

So, without further ado, let’ dive right in!

Can I qualify for life insurance after I’ve been prescribed Viagra?

Yes, individuals who have been prescribed Viagra can and often will be able to qualify for a traditional term or whole life insurance policy.  In fact, they may even be able to qualify for a traditional term or whole life insurance policy.

Why do life insurance companies care if I’ve been prescribed Viagra?

When it comes to Viagra, what you’re typically going to find is that most life insurance companies aren’t going to be all that interested in the fact that you’ve been prescribed it assuming that you’re only using it to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).  This is because while suffering from ED may not be all that “fun” it’s definitely not something that is going to affect the outcome of your life insurance application.

That said however…

If you are using your Viagra to help you treat pulmonary arterial hypertension there is a good chance that you’ll be asked about it, but what usually happens is that an insurance underwriter will discover this “other” pre-existing medical condition another way rather than through one’s prescription for Viagra which is why at that point they’re really not going to spend a ton of time asking you questions about your Viagra.

Now at this point…

You might be wondering “how” a life insurance company might learn that you’ve been diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension or erectile disfunction or any number of other possible pre-existing medical conditions which is why it’s probably worth taking a moment and discussing what some of the questions you might be asked by an insurance company when applying for a traditional term or whole life insurance policy.

What kind of information will the insurance companies ask me or be interested in?

Life insurance companies have several ways that they’re able to learn information about a potential new customer.  Ways such as:

  • Ordering a prescription database check to learn about what medications you have been prescribed in the past.
  • Ordering a DMV check to learn about your diving history.
  • Running a criminal background check to determine if you’ve ever been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor.

As well as possibly ordering a “credit check” as well.

Then on top of all this…

Most life insurance companies will also want to ask you a series of questions as well.  Questions such as:

  • What’s your gender?
  • When were you born?
  • What is your current height and weight?
  • Have you ever been diagnosed with a pre-existing medical condition?
  • Have you ever been diagnosed with cancer, heart disease or diabetes?
  • Have you ever suffered from a heart attack or stroke?
  • Have any of your immediate family members (mother, father, brother or sister) ever been diagnosed with a cancer, heart disease or diabetes? Have any of them ever suffered from a heart attack or stroke?
  • In the past 12 months have you used any tobacco or nicotine products?
  • Do you actively participate or plan on participating in any dangerous hobbies?
  • In the past 2 years have you ever declared bankruptcy?
  • Do you have any issues with your driving record?
  • Do you have any set plans to travel outside of the United States in the next year?
  • Are you currently working now?
  • In the past 12 months, have you applied for or received any form of disability benefits?

What rate (or price) can I qualify for?

Now as you can see, there are a lot of factors that can come into play when determining what kind of “rate” an individual can qualify for.  Some will of course focus on medical issues, but as you can see a surprising amount of questions will also focus on “non-medical” issues as well.

This is why…

Without actually speaking to a person it’s pretty much impossible to guess what kind of “rate” they might be able to qualify for.  That said however, what we can tell you is that if you’re only using your Viagra to help you treat erectile dysfunction, what you’re most likely going to find is that whatever “rate” you would have been able to qualify for PRIOR to being prescribed Viagra should be the same rate that you would have been able to qualify for AFTER having been prescribed Viagra.

Where you’re Viagra…

Prescription might make a difference would be in cases where the Viagra is actually be using to treat pulmonary arterial hypertension, but even there, having been prescribed Viagra will most likely take a back seat to the fact that you have been diagnosed with such a potentially serious condition.

Which brings us to the last topic that we wanted to take a moment and discuss here in this article which is…

What can I do to help ensure that I get the “best life insurance” for me?
