This really isn't an Insurance Question - It's a "Medical Question" One - My Father and Grandfather were also an Insurance Agents. They taught me that if the client can pay the premium - we have a policy for them. Basically the general rule of Insurance is that they are insuring the average general population at the regular price. If you have an issue that makes you "riskier" then you either don't get the coverage or you pay a higher price. If you were a lot healthier - then you would want a lower price than everyone else.

You have to be on the registration as well. Most insurance companies are cracking down on this because people are using other's with better driving records to save money-so they got wise

One option is to compare individual car insurance companies such as Progressive or Geico. Progressive also compares their car insurance with other companies to cut down an extra step.

There are many companies out there that sell Malpractice coverage. You just have to check with another insurance company.
