Diabetes Insurance Coverage FAQ
What is diabetes?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin or when one’s body cannot use the insulin it produces effectively. Our bodies need insulin to regulate blood glucose. If left unmanaged, diabetes can lead to significant medical issues, including kidney failure, heart attack, stroke, blindness and limb amputations.
Is there any insurance for diabetes?
Yes, some insurance companies offer insurance for diabetes in Malaysia. For example, Prudential’s PRUMy Diabetes Care is a medical card rider attached to an investment-linked policy with no lifetime limit.
Can a Type 2 diabetic get life insurance?
Yes, a person with Type 2 diabetes can still get life insurance. However, you should disclose your condition when applying for insurance to avoid problems with your application or claims further down the road. Your insurer will consider your condition when calculating your quote, and you may have to pay a higher premium because diabetes is a disease that comes with health risks. Nonetheless, life insurance is always worth it, so speak to your insurance company about it. Remember that your medical condition isn’t the only factor that affects your premium.
How to get insurance for diabetes?
Not all insurance companies offer insurance for diabetes. Thus, you’ll have to find out which ones do and ask them how to apply. More than likely, there will be certain criteria that you’ll have to fulfil before your diabetes insurance is approved. For example, some criteria stipulated by Prudential’s diabetes insurance are that the individual applying should not have a BMI over 30 and should not be suffering from stroke, heart disorders or kidney impairments when applying. Nonetheless, you can still apply even if you do not fulfil the criteria given, as applications are considered case by case.
Do I have to tell my insurance I have Type 2 diabetes?
Yes, it is always best to disclose any health issues when applying for insurance. This will help you avoid claims being delayed or denied.
Is diabetes a critical illness?
No, diabetes is not covered by critical illness insurance as it can be managed and, thus, is not considered a life-threatening disease. However, health issues resulting from diabetes, such as heart disease, kidney failure and stroke, are covered by critical illness insurance policies. Thus, purchasing a critical illness cover is always a good idea if you have a family history of diabetes.
Who should get insurance for diabetes?
Individuals at risk of developing this condition should consider getting insurance for diabetes. Some risk factors for diabetes include genes and family history, so if diabetes runs in your family, you should purchase insurance before it is too late. Additionally, overweight and physically inactive individuals are more at risk of developing diabetes.
What are the symptoms of diabetes?
Signs and symptoms of diabetes include:
Increased thirst and urination
Unexplained weight loss
Feeling numbness or tingling sensations in hands and feet
Sores that do not seem to heal
Diabetes symptoms may develop slowly over time, so you may not notice it. In addition, some people do not have symptoms until a diabetes-related health issue arises.
