What is no exam life insurance?

Most Life Insurance companies require you to have a mini exam as a requirement for coverage. This exam usually comprises of taking your height/weight, blood sample, urine sample and a few background health questions. After the exam is completed, the fluids are sent to a lab and then all information is forwarded to the carrier's underwriting department for consideration. Insurance companies will do this to get an overall picture of how healthy you are and what kind of lifestyle you live. Those who go down this route usually get No Exam Life Insurance due to convenience or because they haven't seen a doctor in a few years. To qualify for No Exam coverage, you generally need to answer 7-10 health questions. A couple good sites to visit are:

Insurance companies may also request a blood profile and urine sample to test, which could uncover drug abuse.
