Anorexia life insurance

Do you have a previous history of anorexia?

We work with a network of approved impaired insurance specialists, and our comparison tool can help you quickly and easily locate the best anorexia life insurance cover at the right price.

Anorexia is a serious mental health condition that takes the form of an eating disorder. Anorexia sufferers worry continuously about their weight and try to keep their weight to dangerously low levels. They do this through exercising too much, laxatives, appetite supressants and eating too little. Over time, this puts a severe strain on the body's organs as they do not get the nutrition they require to function properly. Anorexia is often linked to body dysmorphia, when a person has a distorted image of their body in their mind, thinking they are overweight and fat, when they are actually dangerously thin.

Anorexia is most common in women and teenage girls. Signs of anorexia include starvation, a low BMI, skipping meals even when hungry, taking medications to suppress the appetite, fatigue, feeling dizzy and light-headed, constipation and missed periods (in women).

Anorexia is treated through counselling, often through an eating disorder treatment specialist.

Anorexia is a complicated and difficult condition to overcome, therefore if you have a history of anorexia, you may be wondering where you can find anorexia life insurance cover that suits your needs. As anorexia is considered a pre-existing medical condition (like diabetes), some insurers can be cautious about accepting applications. All insurers have to underwrite applications they receive from customers looking for anorexia life insurance, and need to manage their level of risk. An insurer will want to know some details about your overall health now and how severe your previous anorexia was or is, before making a decision on your level of risk. If you are unsure of where to find the right insurer, iLL can help through a free comparison service.

Anorexia life insurance can be offered on standard terms if you have successfully recovered from anorexia, have no associated symptoms or relapse and live a healthy life with a healthy BMI. Your premiums may be higher or you may have exclusions placed on your policy if you continue to struggle with anorexia, or if you have been hospitalised or received treatment as a result of the disorder.

Prices from insurers will vary depending on who you speak to, which is why iLL is the best place to find the right anorexia life insurance specialist.

You may find that a loading fee is applied to your policy. This is an increase on the price you pay as a premium, depending on your level of risk to an insurer. For instance, if your condition is severe, you have a dangerously low weight and there is a great likelihood of you making a claim to an insurance company in future, a loading fee may be applied to cover this risk, or cover may be declined.

At iLL, our specialist impaired life insurance partners and comparison service can help you find the right FCA-regulated life insurer that suits your needs, helping you to compare prices and find the right policy that suits you. Simply obtain your quote below.

Further cover for anorexia life insurance

Insurance companies deal with applications for critical illness cover in the same way that they do for life insurance. If you have anorexia and would like to apply for critical illness cover, an insurer will want to know certain details about your circumstances, including your current health and BMI, the lowest your weight has been, mental health and counselling therapies you have undertaken, and so on. Depending on your circumstances and level of risk, you could be offered cover at either standard or non-standard terms with a higher premium. A GP report will likely be requested.
