How much does atrial fibrillation life insurance cost?

When applying for atrial fibrillation life insurance, the cost of cover will vary depending on your diagnosis. Life insurance providers will request a copy of your medical records to understand the severity of your attacks, along with any previous symptoms/related conditions such as heart failure, high blood pressure, blood clots and heart attacks. If your diagnosis is mild, with no recent attacks, hospitalisation or related heart problems, cover will usually be offered with a small premium loading.

However, where attacks are more frequent and have related medical conditions such as high blood pressure, high premiums may be applied to your atrial fibrillation life insurance cover. If you do experience regular paroxysmal atrial fibrillation attacks, your application may be declined or include significant premiums and exclusions.

If you are applying for atrial fibrillation life insurance, it is highly likely that insurance providers will request a copy of your medical history, along with details of your diagnosis. If your diagnosis is mild, with irregular attacks and no further heart conditions, life insurance cover will be offered with a small premium.
However, if your case is severe where attacks are regular, greater premiums and exclusions will be added to your policy, or the possibility of having your application declined. If you are eligible for atrial fibrillation life insurance, here are some factors to consider:

  • Mortgage amount (£’s)
  • Outstanding debt (e.g. Loans, second charge, credit cards and other)
  • Dependents
  • Spouse or Partner
  • Income (after Tax)
  • Assets (e.g. car, house, business etc.)

When applying for critical illness cover with an atrial fibrillation diagnosis, the underwritten guidelines will normally be stricter than those of life insurance. Your likelihood will have a high dependency on your medical history report, including the frequency of your attacks and the severity of your symptoms. If your attacks are irregular, with no recent hospitalisation or life limiting symptoms, critical illness cover will be offered with a moderate premium increase.

If your atrial fibrillation is severe, attacks are regular, or you have serious related conditions, your application may be postponed or declined. To discuss your eligibility for critical illness cover, contact our team today! If this policy is unsuitable for you, they will do their upmost to source an alternative product.
Prior to applying for critical illness cover, consider these factors:

  • Income (after Tax)
  • Mortgage payments (annual)
  • Cost of living (annual)
  • Any other possible costs (e.g. medical treatment or adaptations)

Similar to the underwritten guidelines of life insurance, income protection cover for those with mild symptoms and irregular attacks is available. Income protection will usually be offered if you have no further medical conditions with a small loading. If your condition is severe with regular attacks, your policy will be offered with higher premiums, or in some cases declined.

If you are declined income protection cover, there are alternative policies available such as Accident, sickness and unemployment cover. Contact our team to discuss this option today!

If income protection is of interest, here are factors to consider:

  • Monthly income (after tax)
  • Mortgage/rent payments
  • Debts (other)
  • Cost of living
