Quotesmith.com Begins Offering Instant "No-Exam" Whole Life Insurance Quotes
DARIEN, Illinois (April 20, 1998) -- Quotesmith.com has today announced the expansion of its instant insurance price comparison service to include instant quotes for "no-exam" final expense whole life insurance on the Internet at www.quotesmith.com.
Commenting on the introduction of this brand new insurance price comparison service, Quotesmith.com President Robert Bland remarked, "There's nothing like this anywhere else on the Internet. This is an exciting, new and useful insurance price comparison service for consumers because there is no other single public source for this information anywhere."
Bland continued, "Right now in America there are about 50 insurance companies offering final expense whole life insurance, which is also called "simplified issue" life insurance because most companies do not require any paramedical examinations, blood or urine samples. These streamlined underwriting features, combined with the traditional whole life guarantee of level premiums for life, appeal to older life insurance shoppers who want to avoid the hassles and delays associated with outside lab reports and paramed exams. These types of life insurance policies can also be suitable for people who have medical histories which prevent them from qualifying for lower-cost life insurance."
The company announced that quotes for final expense whole life insurance in policy face amounts of $2,000 to $100,000 are now immediately available for free on the World Wide Web at www.quotesmith.com.
On January 9, 1998 Quotesmith.com was named "Unquestionably the number one rating service on the Internet, by a very wide margin" by FBO Newsletter, a Raleigh, North Carolina publication.
