Life insurance with Hepatitis C
Have you been denied coverage?
If so, you’re not alone. One in 30 baby boomers has Hepatitis C, and for years these individuals found themselves unable to get the coverage they needed to protect what’s important in their lives.1 They’ve either been deemed uninsurable or they faced unaffordable rates.
The good news is now there's a cure for Hepatitis C, and Lincoln Financial – in partnership with MunichRe – offers those who've been successfully treated for the disease better life insurance rates. So ask your advisor how you can get more affordable coverage.
