Q5: Why do insurance companies need to verify the health, occupation and financial status of the insured when examining applications for insurance?
The verification of the health, occupation and financial status of the insured is a process of risk selection, ie the underwriting that insurance companies must complete when assessing an insurance application. Life insurance underwriting means verification, assessment, screening and classification of the insurance object (ie the life and body of a person) to determine whether the insurance object is an insurable risk and what premium rate or condition should be applied , in order to homogenize the individual risk of the insurance object, and maintain the fairness of the insurance system.
Q6: Should the insured person be required to have his/her health examined at the time of application?
The insured may be required to have a medical check-up depending on: the insurance amount exceeding the non-med limit, health condition, random sampling and personal habits such as smoking or drinking. When that is the case, the examinee should complete the relevant medical examinations according to the specific requirements at a venue specified by the insurance company.
Q7: What do I need to know about medical checks?
The examinee should carry his/her ID certificate for the medical check. Any minors under 18 years old should be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian (who should also bring their own ID certificates). Female clients should avoid wearing a one-piece dress, and should not receive a medical check during a menstrual period, or three days before or after the period.
If the examinee is required to have a blood test or ultrasonic B test, he/she should not eat for at least eight hours prior to the test to avoid affecting the results.
The examinee must give true and accurate information to the doctor about his/her health history and sign the record after the examination. For a minor under 18 years old, the record should be signed by his/her parent or legal guardian, and the signature should be identical with the one on the insurance policy. People who are illiterate should put their right thumb print on the record and draw a symbol identical to the one on the insurance policy.
The examinee must follow the doctor's instructions and be cooperative.
Any examinees with a past medical history should bring their complete medical records for the medical check.
Prior to the medical check, the examinee should avoid over-fatigue and strenuous exercise.
Personal property should be looked after during the medical check.
