Estimate Your Health Class

Insurance rating classifications (your health class) are based on one’s medical history and the results of the medical exam (if one is taken). Each insurance company is somewhat different. They differ on the names of their classifications and in the requirements to qualify for a rating class. The following can give you some guidelines. Much of the content of these definitions comes directly from major life insurance company rating guides. Note: For the most accurate quotes, we strongly recommend you use the Health Analyzer in the quote process.
