Life Insurance for HIV
Dec 7, 2008

I am a parent of an HIV teen. I would like to purchase life insurance but am not sure quite how as most insurance agencies wont cover my son.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unfortunately, since HIV is a progressive incurable disease, I doubt any life insurance companies would be willing to write a policy on your HIV-positive teenager. If they did, most likely the premium would be prohibitively expensive.
