Paramedical Exam, what is it?
Before issuing a policy, an insurance company needs medical information about you, the applicant. A certified medical professional gathers this information during a paramedical examination. The medical professional will ask you questions about your medical history and record your blood pressure, pulse, height and weight. The insurance company may also require an EKG, urine sample, blood sample or a saliva sample. The exam will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the length of your medical history. You will not be required to undress during the exam.
