What are the Best Life Insurance Companies for Diabetics?
We want to make this very clear to all consumers. There is NO BEST company as everybody will have a different health profile and a different Diabetes history.

With this being said, some life insurance companies are typically a better fit for the Diabetes community. Our list is actually based on real life experience with clients receiving offers of coverage from these companies. Here’s a quick list of our favorite life insurance companies:

What Types of Underwriting Can People With Diabetes Choose From?
People with diabetes will have two different types of underwriting to choose from. Fully underwritten life insurance and no medical exam life insurance.
If electing for a fully underwritten policy, you will be subject to a blood and test, as well as a paramedical exam. The paramedical exam simply consists of an examiner visiting you at your house, or place of business. They will ask pertinent health history questions, and collect a blood and urine sample
Those results, in addition to a review of your diabetes and medical records, will be sent to an underwriter. All of your health information and lab results determine your risk to an insurance company. That risk then will tell you what life insurance rates you are eligible for.
The better your control of diabetes, and overall health, the better life insurance rating you’ll be offered. The better the insurance rating, the lower your premiums will be.
If looking for a no medical exam life insurance policy with diabetes, you’ll have options. Instead of having companies test your blood and urine, they will simply have you answer basic health questions, and provide details to your diabetes history.
In addition to this, companies will run a prescription background check, and MIB ( Medical Information Bureau) review. Your answers on the application, and information collected from the background review, will determine your eligibility.
If you have type 1 diabetes, you’ll only have a few options to select from. However, if you have Prediabetes, or type 2 diabetes, there would most likely be a plethora of no medical exam options to choose from. One of our agents would be more than happy to assist you, and determine what options you’d have. Just reach out to us, and let us do all the hard work!
Term Life Insurance with Diabetes
For many people with diabetes, they would initially need a term life insurance policy. Term life insurance for diabetics is easier to qualify for than most think. Over the last 9 years, we’ve found term policies for nearly 90% of our applicants who applied through us.
Finding the ‘right’ company for term life insurance is key if you want to minimize the amount of premiums paid over the life of the policy. If one life insurance company charges 25% more per year compared to another, this could lead to spending thousands of dollars more than you necessarily have to.
Let an agent with Diabetes Life Solutions work with you, and help you find the best possible term life insurance policy possible.
Here are some basic policy features of term life insurance:
- Immediate death benefit
- Guaranteed premiums for term duration you select
- Provides a lump sum and tax free death benefit to beneficiary
- Death benefit will remain level for initial term duration
- Policy can be converted to a permanent type of coverage without undergoing any further underwriting or medical testing
Life Insurance with Type 1 Diabetes
Normally type 1 diabetes is diagnosed in young adults and children, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. However, it is becoming more common for people to be diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, at an older age. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the conditions or disease.
Over time, life insurance companies have begun underwriting the type 1 diabetes community more fairly. Gone are the days of being automatically disqualified, due to having type 1 diabetes. As a matter of fact, life insurance rates.rates are at an all time low for diabetics with type 1.
Per the American Diabetes Association: “In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the sugars and starches you eat into a simple sugar called glucose, which it uses for energy. Insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy lives.”
When it comes to life insurance and type 1 diabetics, life insurance companies are going to view you as a ‘higher’ risk, compared to individuals with other types of diabetes. Life insurance for type 1 diabetics will also tend to be more expensive, compared to other types of diabetes. Many people who have type 1 diabetes think that they cannot qualify for life insurance coverage. That’s just simply not true. Click here for an entire article on type 1 diabetes and life insurance.
Life insurance rates for type 1 diabetics will almost be more expensive compared to rates for type 2 diabetics. A person with type 1 diabetes will most likely be offered a sub-standard policy. This means the cost of life insurance will be ‘table rated’ and more expensive. Rarely you’ll qualify for Standard, Standard Plus, Preferred, nor Preferred Plus rates. If any website or agent quotes rates using these ratings classifications, please be aware your ‘true’ rates for coverage will be much more expensive.
However, affordable life insurance for diabetics with type 1 can be obtained. Our expertise in working with the diabetes community can help you and your family save thousands of dollars, over the lifetime of the insurance policy. Call us at 888-629-3064 and let us go to work for you.
We know which carriers that may offer the best rates, and even discounts for people with type 1 diabetes. After we know your complete health profile, we can recommend companies that will be ideal given your financial objectives. An example of this is if you are using diabetes related technology, certain companies offer better rates to you. Other companies may offer discounts if you exercise regularly,and live a healthy lifestyle.
Let us help you find the best type 1 diabetes life insurance carriers who will reward you with lower life insurance premiums!
Life Insurance with Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetes is a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Fortunately
Per the American Diabetes Association: “If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly. This is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But, over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to keep your blood glucose at normal levels.”
People with type 2 diabetes will normally have an easier time acquiring life insurance, compared to an individual with type 1 diabetes. Life insurance companies will view you as a more favorable risk, and rates typically lower. In fact, majority of people with type 2 diabetes achieve a STANDARD rating, or better, in terms of life insurance offers. This essentially means that your rates would not be rated higher, due to having diabetes type 2.
Majority of companies are not necessarily worried with the types of medications you are taking, but rather what is your overall control of your type 2 diabetes. A person could be taking insulin, oral medications, or maybe a combination of the two, to control their diabetes condition. Or if you are able to control with diet, and exercise alone, companies will consider for Preferred rates. YES! Same rates that people without diabetes qualify for! Click here for an entire article on life insurance for type 2 diabetics.
Type 2 diabetes life insurance rates are also at an all time low. It’s never been easier to find life insurance for type 2 diabetes! Life insurance companies are even offering discounts for people who use FitBit’s, exercise regularly, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. These discounts can equal thousands of dollars over the lifetime of the policy.
Many companies are even offering no medical exam policies for type 2 diabetics. These policies can be approved in a matter of minutes, or days. Policies like these are great for people who are in a hurry, and need life insurance for a SBA loan or a divorce obligation. Or if you just do not have time to complete a paramedical exam, no medical exam policies may be the perfect fit.
Life Insurance with Pre-Diabetes
For many individuals, you may be considered pre-diabetic. According to the Center of Diabetes and Control Prevention, nearly 84 million people may have pre-diabetes. But how does being pre-diabetic impact your life insurance rates, or ability to qualify for life insurance?
The main concern life insurance underwriters will have is what your A1C rating is. Generally, having Pre-Diabtes means your A1C is between 5.6% to 6.4% . If you are in this range, you’ll have NO issues qualifying for life insurance. If you’re A1C is above this range, don’t worry. You’ll still most likely qualify for life insurance coverage.
Companies will want to make sure you’re seeing a doctor, and being compliant with their instructions. Many people with Pre-Diabetes will qualify for Standard to Preferred Plus insurance rates. You’ll also have several non medical exam life insurance options to choose from, if wishing to bypass a paramedical exam. In addition to asking questions about the Pre-Diabetes history, companies will want to know the following:
- Current height and weight
- Medications currently being prescribed
- Any other significant health issues?
- Any Tobacco usage?
Finding life insurance with pre-diabetes should be a fairly easy task for you. To find out what your options are, or if you qualify for special rates, simply contact us. An agent will access your health profile, and provide you some accurate life insurance information.
Life Insurance with Gestational Diabetes
Gestational diabetes is a condition that starts when your body is unable to make and use all the insulin it needs for pregnancy. Without enough insulin, glucose cannot leave the blood and be changed to energy. When glucose builds up in the blood to high levels, this is called hyperglycemia.
Per the American Diabetes Association: “During pregnancy – usually around the 24th week – many women develop gestational diabetes. A diagnosis of gestational diabetes doesn’t mean that you had diabetes before you conceived, or that you will have diabetes after giving birth. But it’s important to follow your doctor’s advice regarding blood glucose (blood sugar) levels while you’re planning your pregnancy, so you and your baby both remain healthy.”
Life insurance companies generally will not rate you higher, if you have a history of gestational diabetes. Assuming that you have followed treatment plans, from your doctor, you could easily qualify for Standard to Preferred life insurance rates. These are the same types of rates that people without any form of diabetes receive.
Many people who think that life insurance with gestational diabetes can be hard to obtain. The truth is, it’s very easy to qualify for. You just need to work with the right agent, who specializes in working with people with diabetes. Somebody like Diabetes Life Solutions!
Children with Juvenile Diabetes
Throughout the world, incidences of diabetes are on the rise, and consequently so is diabetes amongst children. Diabetes is the most common metabolic disease in young people today. One of the early signs of diabetes in children is increased urination and thirst. When blood-sugar is high it triggers a reaction in the body that pulls fluid from tissues.
Per the American Diabetes Association: “Approximately 90% of young people with diabetes suffer from type 1 and the number of patients who are children varies from place to place.”
Many parents tend to want to take out a life insurance policy on their children. We think this can be a great long term, financial product for your family. Problem is, finding a life insurance policy on a child with diabetes, can be daunting.
Here at Diabetes Life Solutions, we have discovered that certain life insurance companies will actually offer life insurance for children with diabetes. Knowing the diabetes community was in need of policies like these, we have secured them for our clientele. If looking for life insurance on your child with diabetes, simply reach out to us, and we can share what options you’d have.
Your overall condition and the way you manage your health is what will make or break your chances of getting any type of diabetic life insurance coverage. Whether you follow the advice of your doctor or not in regards to proper management of your condition is entirely your choice. Staying compliant with your diabetes treatment will be a major concern, to life insurance carriers.
Keep in mind that the better you handle your health with the specific diabetic condition you have, the better your chances of getting a policy that is reasonably priced.
Diabetes Life Solutions Questions & Answers
|If I have Diabetes, can I even get life insurance? ||Absolutely. Life insurance rates are at an all time low, for diabetics. More companies are considering people with diabetes for coverage, than at any other point in time. Depending on your level of diabetes control, and other health history, you may qualify for the same life insurance premiums people without diabetes receive. |
|Does Diabetes affect life insurance rates? || |
The answer to this question will ultimately depend on several factors. Diabetes is considered a chronic illness, and life insurance companies may view you as a ‘higher’ risk in terms of underwriting. In some circumstances diabetes will have NO impact on your life insurance rates. For some people with diabetes, you will pay higher premiums on life insurance.
Life insurance companies are going to want to know what type of control you have over your type 1 or type 2 diabetes. The better the control, the greater chance that your diabetes won’t have an impact on life insurance rates. Many people who have type 2 diabetes qualify for standard life insurance rates that have no extra increase in premiums, due to the history of diabetes. However, if you have type 1 diabetes, you are most likely going to pay higher premiums, compared to a person without diabetes.
When it comes to calculating the amount of coverage and premiums of life insurance for diabetics, it is their current health and diabetes conditions that matter, as well as past health history. That is why insurers will want you to have some medical tests and provide them with documentation on your treatments and follow-up reports so that all risks can be accurately evaluated.
Given that, having diabetes doesn’t necessarily mean you will have to deal with higher premiums. It all depends on your health.
|Is it hard to get life insurance with Diabetes? || |
No, it really isn’t. It may be a little tricker, depending on your overall health profile. Life insurance companies have come leaps and bounds over the years, to make obtaining life insurance with diabetes much easier. The key is to work with agents who are properly trained, in working with the diabetes community. Ideally, you’d want to work with an agent affiliated with Diabetes Life Solutions. Depending on your financial objectives, we will simply help you find the best policy, that meets your needs. Many websites, adn agents provide fake, or inaccurate information. This is sad, but routinely occurs. When working with us, you’ll only receive REAL and ACCURATE information.
|What types of life insurance policies can diabetics qualify for? || |
Most people with Diabetes can qualify for all the same types of policies, as people who do not have Diabetes. This includes Term life insurance, Whole life insurance, Universal life insurance, and even burial insurance policies. Depending on what your financial needs are, you would be able to obtain the proper type of life insurance policy.
|What medical records do I need to provide an insurer with? ||As you may already know, the insurance application process begins with a review of your health profile, that is aimed at helping underwriters find out more details on your case. In order to make an unbiased decision on whether you qualify for a policy or not, they will require medical records and documentation from your Endocrinologist or Doctor for: |
- up-to-date test results for A1C, blood pressure, fasting blood sugar, cholesterol levels, etc.);
- diabetes management methods, treatments, and medications you have been used/are currently using;
- detailed follow-up reports;
- any diabetes-related complications and adverse conditions.
Keep in mind that this information is essential for getting approved for a diabetes life insurance policy. Your agent would work with your medical providers to secure these records.
|Do you have to take a medical exam, to qualify for diabetes life insurance? || |
No, you do not. Depending on your situation, you may qualify for multiple no exam life insurance policies. Some life insurance carriers may offer the same rates, as if you completed a paramedical exam. When working with us, we’ll provide you no medical exam options, if you meet the underwriting criteria. Often times, a person may be better off doing a no medical exam policy, compared to going thru with a blood and urine test.
|What amount life insurance can I qualify for? || |
It depends. There are countless factors which affect how much you can qualify for in coverage. As long as you can ‘financially’ justify the amount of coverage you are seeking, most companies should be able to provide the needed amount. When calculating your benefits, underwriters are likely to place an increasing emphasis on how you manage your Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, what medications you currently take, and at what age you were diagnosed with this chronic disease. As long as you fit their underwriting guidelines, you would be able to obtain whatever amount of life insurance you need.
Now if you are looking for no medical exam options, most companies are going to ‘cap’ the amount they will offer. The amount of coverage varies from company to company and can go up to $500,000. Besides, the type of policy should also be factored in. Typically, no medical exam life insurance provides less in benefits than traditional plans.
|Can I qualify for life insurance if my A1C is more than 8.5? || |
The A1C test is something that tells your underwriter whether or not you manage to control your diabetes well by showing your average blood sugar level for 3 months. The results of this test help the insurance company to assess your case in terms of risks. Ideally, an underwriter would want your A1C level should be below 7.0, meaning that the likelihood of diabetes-related complications is minimized.
Unfortunately, not everyone with diabetes can keep their A1C level at a lower level. If it is 8.5or higher, your underwriter will consider your case, but may view you as a higher risk. As a result, this can dramatically increase your premiums for life insurance. Some companies will consider you for coverage, with an A1C as high as 10.0 However, you should know your options. Even if some insurance companies have already refused to offer coverage to you, do not give up and continue to shop around. Or you can always turn to Diabetes Life Solutions for help. We help people everyday with diabetes, obtain affordable life insurance.

How Much Will Life Insurance With Diabetes Cost?
In many cases, life insurance for diabetics will cost more than that of an average policyholder who is in good health. However, the actual cost of your policy will ultimately depend on your overall health condition. It’s impossible to determine possible rates of life insurance without sharing your unique health profile with an agent.
With most insurance companies, there are five primary rating classifications for policyholders. These classifications – or classes – will also have a bearing on the amount of premium that is paid by the policyholder. These include:
- Preferred Plus – Those who obtain a preferred plus rating are considered to be the healthiest. These policy holders are in excellent health, and will therefore pay the lowest amount of premium, as they pose the least amount of risk to the insurer.
- Preferred – Those who obtain a preferred rating are also considered to be very healthy, and will therefore also pay a low amount of premium. While they are not considered to be in as “excellent” of health as those in the Preferred Plus category, they are still considered to be above average.
- Standard Plus – Those who are in good overall health, but not quite at a Preferred status, can receive a Standard Plus rating.
- Standard – Standard policy holders are typically those who are considered to be of “average” health, height, and weight.
- Substandard – Those who fall into the Substandard classification usually have some type of adverse health condition. Because of this, they are considered to pose more risk to the insurer, and in order to compensate for that risk, they are charged a higher amount of premium. There are typically several levels of Substandard, depending on the severity of the condition or the amount of risk that the policy holder poses to the insurer.
Quick tip for you. If a website is quoting Preferred or Preferred plus rates, they are most likely misleading you. Only 1% of all diabetes applicants would receive those types of ratings from a life insurance company. Please be aware of this, and do not allow yourself to be tricked.
For those who have diabetes, it is possible to receive life insurance offers, that do not have ‘extra’ premiums or table ratings. You could fall into the Standard, rating category and therefore, pay an average amount of premium for your coverage. Meaning no extra life insurance premiums, for having diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetics or Type 2 Diabetics that also have minor diabetes complications are more likely to fall into one of the Standard to Substandard categories. Life insurance companies are aware that people with diabetes tend to develop some type of complication. If you have one , at time of application, companies may charge 20% to 25% higher premiums.
There are some cases, where a person with diabetes could qualify for Standard Plus, Preferred, or Preferred Plus rates. If you’d like an idea of what insurance rating you may be offered, simply call us at 888-629-3064. An agent would love to speak with you! To receive these types of favorable rates, you will need optimal control of your diabetes, have no other significant health issues, and be at an ideal height and weight.
If you are unable to qualify, even for any of the Substandard categories, in a traditionally underwritten policy, there are still options available to you. One such option is to look for a guaranteed acceptance life insurance policy. This type of coverage will not require you to undergo a medical examination in order to qualify. Nor are there any qualifying health questions. However, due to the policies being designed for people in poor overall health, the premium for coverage will be much higher. Also, amounts of coverage are generally limited to between $10,000 and $50,000.
Here are some sample rates of life insurance, for a person with diabetes. These quotes will give you an idea of the possible costs of life insurance coverage for a diabetic.

Tips for Locating Quality and Affordable Coverage
Those who are seeking coverage for diabetics can’t always depend on going to just one insurer and getting the best deal – or even being accepted for a policy. That is why it is typically your best course of action to work with a company that has access to a number of different insurers. That way, your choice of carriers – and premiums – will be expanded exponentially. You also want to work with people who ONLY work with the diabetes community, such as Diabetes Life Solutions!
You’ll also have to be aware that several websites, and agents, provide FAKE life insurance quotes to the diabetes community. They do this to ‘trick’ you into applying for coverage, and then when offers come back, they’ll be much higher. To us, this is an unethical way of doing business, but it does occur frequently.
The truth is that not all life insurance carriers underwrite policies in the same way. What may constitute a decline for one insurance company may be acceptable to another. For this reason, it definitely pays to shop around and that is why we are so effective here at Diabetes Life Solutions at getting the best rates for diabetic life insurance.
Preparing for a Life Insurance Application and Exam
When you have diabetes, the underwriters will take extra time to see the extent of your condition. Whether you have Type 2 Diabetes or are a Type I Diabetic, getting all your medical information in order ahead of time will make a big difference in how quickly and how affordably you can get your term life insurance policy in place. Since anyone who has any type of health condition is going to be rated on a case-by-case basis you should follow these tips:
- Have the name, address, and phone number for all your doctors.
- Check with your physician to make sure they have all the documentation for your treatments, as well as any follow-up reports.
- Keep a current list of all medications and the dosage for each one.
- Be careful not to skip any doctors appointments leading up to the application for your life insurance plan.
Having all of these items up to date and in line will make finding affordable life insurance with diabetes much easier.

Diabetes Life Solutions Companies without Medical Exams
Here at Diabetes Life Solutions, we love working with life insurance companies that offer affordable rates, high quality policies, and do not require a medical exam. Many no medical exam policies will come with living benefit riders at no extra cost.
In our opinion, one of the biggest mistakes a person with diabetes can make is overpaying for their life insurance policy. This is generally due to thinking they do not have several options available to them. Even though you have diabetes, you’ll have a number of non medical exam life insurance options available to you.
Getting approved for a no-exam life insurance policy does not have to be difficult. While you work with your Diabetes Life Solutions personal shopper, you’ll be asked basic health and diabetes questions. This information would be needed to determine what life insurance companies may offer coverage to you, without undergoing a medical examination.
Certain carriers may still order medical records, and review the last four to five years worth of your medical records. The information in your files will ultimately determine the premiums for life insurance. This may take up to 30 days for an underwriting decision to be made. Other companies may simply do a MIB and prescription drug background check to support your answers to the health questionnaire. Cases like this may be approved in 24 to 72 hours.
For those individuals who do not want to meet with an examiner a no medical exam policy may be ideal. Especially with the coronavirus or Covid 19 situation. Please simply contact us at 888-629-3064 and we’ll provide all the options available to you.
