Heart Disease describes all medical conditions that affect the heart. The term can be used to describe any medical condition that affects the cardio-vascular vessels, any structural problems with the heart and blood clots.

Life Insurance and Heart Diseases
Life insurances are essential financial products that help provide a safe financial future for your loved ones in your absence. Most individuals do include life insurance policy in their long term financial planning and purchasing life insurance is also relatively easier for them as compared to individuals with pre-existing heart conditions.
Heart conditions are very risky for insurance providers to cover as they pose a high-level medical threat to the applicant. Most life insurances provided to such individuals are non-standard or have a higher rate of premium. In severe cases, the insurance company might refuse to provide a cover, however, if the condition is mild and well under control, then life insurance policies can also be made available under standard terms and conditions.
