Yes. It's called Mortgage Life Insurance or Credit Life Insurance and is sold by the lenders. But if you can qualify (no outstanding health problems) it may be cheaper to get a decreasing life insurance policy or a whole life policy on your own.

Mortgage Protection Life Insurance is a good idea if you want to protect your mortgage. It pays the outstanding balance of your mortgage if the mortgagor (insured person) dies. Mortgage protection life insurance coverage is usually in the form of decreasing term insurance, with the amount of coverage decreasing as the outstanding mortgage debt decreases. Usually, the proceeds of the mortgage protection life insurance are paid to the beneficiary, which is the mortgage company holding the mortgage loan. Some people choose instead to buy level term life insurance in the amount of the mortgage, and the benefits are paid to the insured's beneficiary (family member), who in turn can use the proceeds for any reason, including to pay the mortgage.
