WASHINGTON, September 16, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Jan Graeber, American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI) Senior Health Actuary released the following statement on misinformation regarding COVID-19 vaccines:
“We said it before and, sadly, we have to say it again as misinformation about life insurance claims and the COVID-19 vaccine continues to spread.
“Policyholders must be assured that nothing has changed in the claims settlement process following COVID-19 vaccinations. Life insurance policies are very clear about how they work and the cause, if any, that could lead to the denial of a claim. The decision of an insured whether or not to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is not one of them. Nothing has changed in the life insurer claims settlement process.
“Policyholders should contact their life insurance companies, agents or financial professionals with questions related to COVID. They will be happy to help you. “
