If you are a type 2 diabetic researching life insurance policies, it is important to educate yourself about how your health will affect the type of policy you can get and the rate you’ll pay. High rates, rejection, and invasive medical exams and questions are some of the concerns of type 2 diabetics who are shopping for life insurance.For a very long time, type 2 diabetes put up a block to getting affordable life insurance. It is interesting because type 2 diabetes is one of the fastest growing health issues in America with  26 million people diagnosed, and millions more with symptoms of pre-diabetes. With those kinds of statistics, insurance companies can’t afford to ignore diabetics as a potential market. So insurance underwriters are becoming more and more familiar with diabetes and its effect on morality and your health overall.Fortunately, the insurance market has changed a great deal. There are many “diabetic friendly” companies that offer reasonable rates. There is even a company that now offers preferred rates to type 2 diabetics, if you meet the criteria. This is unheard of! And this company is the first of its kind to do this, but hopefully there are more to follow.Read some of the articles below to learn more about obtaining life insurance if you have type 2 diabetes or get a free quote now.
