Best Answer

Insurance companies don't want to take the chance on an inmate. The probability that a person will die in prison or sooner than the average citizen is much higher. If they don't get killed in prison, they could catch some disease on the inside and shorten their life. Chances are they are in prison for something they did which was dangerous so it hurts their credibility to get insurance.
