Health Insurance Application

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:59am
Hi everyone. It is time to get this blog up and going again. The first thing I want to tell you about is completing a health insurance application. If you are applying for coverage, most likely, you will need to provide a health history. It is of utmost importance that you include absolutely everything. They will likely ask for a complete history for the past 3 years, maybe 5 years. Include all medications, Dr. visits and any health conditions or injuries. It is very difficult to remember every little thing, but that is what you will need to do. If you don't include everything, and it surfaces at a later time, it could result in non-coverage or even rescinding your policy for non-disclosure.

No one wants that to happen, but that is how it works. My suggestion to you is to start a list now. Do this even if you don't think you will not need it. Going to a new physician, you will need to answer these type requests. Start your list now and every time something changes, update your list. Make a list of any medications you are taking or have taken in the past five years. Include even an antibiotic or sinus pill. Add the reason for taking each and the approximate dates. Do the same thing with any illnesses you may have or have had and any visits to a doctor.

Being proactive in keeping a personal health record now, will save you time and accuracy in the future. This gives you time to account for everything. As you remember something, add it to your log. Do this, and you will be prepared for the next time you are required to submit health information. You will find examples of blank logs on my web
