    Got an A Fib sprung on me, takes glimparide and prevastatin, no complications. Looking for a plan G, Equitable said she needs to be taking the medication with no complications for atleast 5 years and it hasn't been that long.
    Anyone know what the requirements of other companies are (excluding Aetna)?
    Appreciate any help.

    Scratch that I called New Era, and THEY had the 5 year rule. Equitable is a decline in the uw guide. I will have to check out Medico, thanks for that.

    I can't place them with MOO because MOO is who they are with, but it was with one of those old companies they have that the rates are going parabolic on. That would be a tough sell, even tougher to get paid.

    Wow I never considered MOO because they are s tough on many other things, I will try them next time

    Medico told me directly when I called underwriting they would accept if stable for 2 years, But then they declined them for taking a blood thinner. Blood thinner is always taken when someone has Afib

    All heart rhythm disorders go to Oxford. No problem at all with them.

    I doubt anyone takes that besides AARP. Possibly the Cigna substandard...

    If they are very good on the height-weight scale there is a chance.
