All checks must be made payable to the insurance company you chose. Premium checks are routed by LifeQuote to the insurance company. LifeQuote does not accept any premium checks that are not made payable directly to the insurance company. Some companies will accept a premium with the application.

Can I use my last exam?

Doctors see patients for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it may be a blood pressure check- other times to follow up on a certain condition. The insurance exam asks and looks for specific questions that relate to risk in overall medical condition, and give the underwriter what he needs to proceed.

Can I Use My Doctor For a Life Insurance Exam?

An insurance exam has to be impartial and provide objective information relative to risk assessment. Often a personal doctor is a patient advocate- and wants the client to do well. So do insurance companies, but with all the accurate information needed to make a fair decision. Additionally, a client can ask a personal doctor not to disclose certain information (doctor-patient privilege), which may be a conflict of interest for the doctor to act as both an agent for the company and the potential insured.
