Anorexia Nervosa / Bulimia / Low BMI (<18)

Life Insurance with Anorexia Nervosa / Bulimia / Low BMI (<18)


Life Insurance is not always available for those who are suffering from Anorexia Nervosa or Bulimia where your BMI is extremely low.

Cover can become available once your BMI has stabilised for six months or more and where the underlying causes are controlled and your prognosis is positive. 

If your condition stabilised some time ago and you BMI is somewhat higher, you may find cover is available from mainstream insurers.

If your condition has started to stabilise and your BMI is improving, Pulse may be able to find you cover. However, availability may be limited and the premiums will be higher until your BMI rises towards “higher” levels.

We would invite you to complete our questionnaire per the above guidance and do our level best to find cover for you, if it is available.


Medical Reports

If you have any recent or relevant medical reports, these can enable underwriters to provide a more accurate indication. 
Please send these either to [email protected] or post them to us.
n.b. Do not worry if you don’t have any medical reports as they are not always needed to give an indication of cover / cost.
It may be necessary anyway for separate specific medical reports to be sought if you decide to proceed with an application.
If you have any queries, please give a member of the team a call on 01280 841430.
