According to [your application] [information you have furnished], you intend to lapse or otherwise terminate existing accident and sickness insurance and replace it with a policy to be issued by [insert company name] Insurance Company. For your own information and protection, you should be aware of and seriously consider certain factors that may affect the insurance protection available to you under the new policy.

  1. Health conditions which you may presently have, (preexisting conditions) may not be immediately or fully covered under the new policy. This could result in denial or delay of a claim for benefits present under the new policy, whereas a similar claim might have been payable under your present policy.
  2. You may wish to secure the advice of your present insurer or its agent regarding the proposed replacement of your present policy. This is not only your right, but it is also in your best interests to make sure you understand all the relevant factors involved in replacing your present coverage.
  3. If, after due consideration, you still wish to terminate your present policy and replace it with new coverage, be certain to truthfully and completely answer all questions on the application concern your medical/health history.

After the application has been completed and before you sign it, reread it carefully to be certain that all information has been properly recorded.
