Applied for insurance only to get rejected by the insurer? In such a situation, you may be confused with a lot of questions. To understand why some insurance applications, get rejected you first need to know that insurance companies follow a certain protocol to determine your eligibility. These protocols dictate whether your application gets approved or not.

Diabetics 

Diabetes patients have a hard time getting insurance. If your diabetes is not in control, it's very likely that the condition is irreversible. This also causes collateral damage to your body affecting your other body parts. Such health complications suggest that you are very likely to incur significant costs soon.

This makes your life insurance coverage a very high-risk profile for insurers. People with Type 1 diabetes are more likely to get rejected by insurers compared to people with Type 2 diabetes. As Type 1 diabetes is mostly irreversible, insurers decline the application. However, if your diabetes report for the last 6-12 months indicates that your diabetes has been in control, then chances of your application getting approved are very high

Chronic heart diseases

If you are suffering from chronic cardiac ailments, insurers might not be able to provide you with insurance coverage. As most of the heart diseases are a grim threat to your overall health, insurance companies have categorized it as one of the high-risk profiles. In case, the tests that are done before the approval of the insurance policy, indicate that your heart condition is getting cured then you are likely to receive a positive response from your insurers.

Fatal occupational environment

If you are in an occupation where your work entails activities that are hazardous to health or life-threatening, then insurance companies may deny life insurance. As the probabilities of accidental deaths are extremely high in such circumstances, insurance companies stray away.

Alcoholism

Alcoholics whose liver functioning is noted very high are most probably denied insurance. Chronic alcoholism signifies high liver functioning. This indicates damage to the liver that is irreversible. Alcoholism is also responsible for many other health hazards. Hence, if medical examinations conducted before insurance indicates high liver functions due to alcohol consumption, insurers are very likely to reject such applications. Most life insurance providers mostly never reject applications. However, it is best advised to know about the various reasons that can potentially deny you an insurance cover.
