COPD stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. It’s a common condition that affects more than 380,000 people in Ireland.
So you’re NOT ALONE.
COPD includes chronic bronchitis, emphysema or a combination of both conditions.
You can get life insurance or mortgage protection with mild and moderate COPD. But if your COPD is severe, it will be more difficult, if not impossible to get cover.
This is how the life insurance companies generally classify the types of COPD:
We got the standard price (no increase) for a non-smoking client of ours who had mild COPD.
But a smoker or someone with moderate COPD will pay around 3 times more than someone in perfect health.
The underwriters will review both and will write to your GP for an up to date medical report.
The insurer pays the GP for completing the report.
You’ll only need to do a medical if your GP doesn’t have recent test results (e.g lung function tests, chest x-rays)
This depends on your GP and how fast they send back the report. Some can send it back within a week but the majority take two to three weeks.
Once the underwriters received your medical report they will make a decision in 48 hours.
