There are many things that can happen due to a sexually transmitted disease. Some of them are serious, some of them not so serious. Getting an STD is more than just the STD – it’s about what happens after. Epididymitis is one of those things that men will have to watch out for.
Can Epididymitis Disqualify You from Life Insurance?
This is a question a lot of people want to know. Men who have epididymitis and want a traditional term or whole life insurance policy will have to consider the effects that epididymitis has had. We will briefly discuss how these men will be viewed by an insurance underwriter.
What is Epdidymitis?
Basically, it’s an inflammation of a tube by the testicles. This tube is called the epididymis (hence the name). This tube is responsible for carrying sperm.
Men can get Epdidymitis from…
- Urinary Tract Infection
Children can also get epididymitis, largely from trauma or UTIs.
Symptoms of Epididymitis Include the following:
Complications of Epididymitis
If you have not had proper medical care, there is a chance that you could have some pretty severe complications from Epididymitis. That’s why it is important to seek treatment right away. If you do not, you could wind up infertile, with shrinkage of the testicles or more.
Complications and Life Insurance.
If you have ongoing symptoms or complications from epididymitis, then you will possibly jeopardize your life insurance rate. You probably won’t get a preferred rate, and you may even be disqualified from a term or whole life insurance policy.
Treatment is typically…
- Bed rest
- Elevation of scrotum
If you can’t get term or whole life insurance…
Then you can always opt for a guaranteed issue life insurance policy. Guaranteed issue life insurance policies are life insurance policies that won’t require you to take a medical exam or answer any health-related questions.
The problem is…
Most guaranteed issue life insurance policies will require you to be at least 50 years of age, will only provide up to around $25,000 in coverage and… tend to cost more “dollar for dollar” than other types of life insurance policies.
Guaranteed issue life insurance policies also contain a “graded death benefit” which will limit when your guaranteed issue life insurance policy will begin providing coverage for natural causes of death.
It’s safe to say that for many people a guaranteed issue life insurance policy may not be the best option which is why you should always give us a call before deciding to purchase a guaranteed issue life insurance policy simply because we may have a better option for you!
