It is possible to obtain life insurance for those with certain heart conditions. Life insurance for heart disease patients is more likely to be offered with higher premiums or special terms due to the increased health risk associated with heart conditions. This is due to the perceived additional risk posed to the insurer and the increased likelihood of a claims payout. 

Insurance providers will assess your specific heart condition, medical history, age, lifestyle factors (such as smoking), and overall health when determining your eligibility and premium rates.

We have recently expanded the scope of our services to bring this hard-won experience to those who have a pre-existing health condition and require assistance to explore the cover options available.  Through this natural expansion, we aim to utilise our experience and expertise to provide financial protection advice delivered with exceptional customer service.
