Make a Life Insurance Enquiry
If you need a specialist underwriter.
If you have not been able to get a suitable quotation for Life cover, Pulse specialise in taking your Heart Condition and any other specific conditions and needs into account and finding you Life Insurance cover, if it is available.
We use our knowledge and experience to find a solution when other Life Insurers have declined to quote.
It will be easier to find cover if your condition has become stable. It is almost inevitable that we will require a Medical Report before cover can be issued. We will discuss this with you when you enquire.
Your application with Pulse Insurance will always be individually considered by our human underwriters based on the specifics of the details you provide; you will not be subject to some glib computer system assumption extracted from a condition name or worse.
If you are at all unsure how to proceed, please to not hesitate to give our friendly Pulse Team a call on 01280 841430

While finding cover for everyone is not always possible and the premium will be higher to reflect your increased risk, we like to think we are rather good at helping people find the cover they need.
In most cases of a Heart Condition we can offer indicative premiums and/or a sense of whether cover may be available or not early on; so you can decide how to proceed.
It is always important to declare your Heart Condition and any other medical conditions completely. Failure to be transparent with any insurer can result in a claim being denied – confounding the very reason for paying any premium in the first place.
Your Personal & Medical Details
Everything you disclose about your Heart Condition and any underlying conditions to any life insurer or life agent should be treated with sensitivity and appropriate levels of privacy.
Your Pulse underwriting specialist will look to gain a detailed picture of your health and you should take care to disclose everything. These factors will be explicitly considered when determining the fair premium, you would pay.
Equally, we provide cover based on a “snapshot” of your health, so once a policy has been issued, neither your premium or your cover will be adversely affected if your Heart Condition worsened.
Requirements for more information
While our initial enquiry may not gather enough information to provide an indication of cost, our insurers may ask for more in depth information regarding your Heart Condition and/or any other conditions. Sometimes the details you can provide may allow them to reduce the premium they seek.
As you have a medical condition, it is possible that underwriters will need to seek a Doctor’s report or for you to undergo medical examinations, blood tests or other tests that will confirm your health to allow them to quote an accurate premium and confirm cover details. The costs involved in obtaining the medical information are usually paid by the underwriter, but if not, you will be informed before they are requested.
Pulse will never sell your details to anyone ever. We will use your details to provide the service you have asked for according to the permissions you grant us– read our Privacy and Data Protection policy in full.
Pulse may be able to offer covers beyond everyday Life Insurance to give you the peace of mind and protection you desire.
