We believe that equal access to Life Insurance (and Life Insurance products) is a human right. “and that everyone deserves a fail go free of stigma and discrimination.
We celebrate diversity and serve both the LGBT and straight communities without regard for sexuality, gender, race or religion. Drew Browne, senior adviser @ unUsualrisks.com.au
Over the years we've seen the frustration that people with specialty medical conditions have experienced when trying to deal with a life insurance company. We've also seen the discrimination they faced because of their medical condition and their perceived sexuality. Yes, HIV is no longer considered a death sentence but now a chronic disease but dealing with a life insurance company and disclosing sensitive medical information to strangers is still a major barrier to many people.
- Up till now nobody was prepared to take leadership on this issue and people with pre-existing health conditions were without a specialty advocate.
- That’s now changed with the arrival of unusualrisks.com.au
The website unusualrisks.com.au is currently undergoing extensive user testing and when formally launched in February 2014, will provide an anonymous online pre-assessment service specifically for people looking for life insurance (or related services) who have been diagnosed with HIV or diabetes.
