Update to applicant screening questions
We continue to evaluate our process and practices around COVID-19. We are updating the applicant screening questions during the paramedical scheduling appointment and confirmation processes for life insurance exams as outlined below. These changes will be implemented next week.
- Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19?
- In the last 14 days have you exhibited symptoms of COVID-19, including fever, respiratory distress, or the loss of your sense of smell or test; alternatively, have you had close (within 6 feet) prolonged (10 minutes or more) contact with someone who has?
- In the last 14 days have you traveled in violation of any federal, state or local guidance or orders, or had close contact with an individual who has?
- Our medical professionals are required to wear full personal protective equipment including face shields and we recommend you also wear a face mask if possible. During the medical exam our phlebotomist will be in close proximity to you to complete the specimen collection. Are you comfortable scheduling your appointment at this time?*
If an applicant answers yes to any of the first three questions, or states they do not feel comfortable proceeding with the exam, he or she will be directed to delay scheduling the appointment for 14 days from diagnosis, contact or date of travel, and advised to contact their insurance company.
