    I've got someone with this disease and I'm having a hard time finding a carrier who she's not a decline with. The issue isn't severe at all, but we are having trouble finding a carrier.

    Anyone have any luck with this? We may end up at the risk pool, but I thought I'd check here to see what you guys think...

    Sjogren’s syndrome - WebMD

    Looks like a form of rhemuatoid arthristis. Huge red flag as you know.

    I don't know your area but any kind of rheumatoid is the kiss of death from underwriting in my state.

    I was working a group deal where I was unable to move the group because of rheumatoid. The lady was on 16 meds a month.

    Sjogren's sometimes "morphs" into RA but it is an autoimmune disease where symptoms start with dry eye syndrome. Just checked Aetna, H1, GR . . . all are declines. Time is mute.

    I think you are dead in the water.

    Josh's tip of the day:

    If you can't spell/pronounce it... it's normally a decline...

    PS... is this an internet lead Greg? If so, I think we may be competing on some leads... I recently ran into this... Got a lead credit too!

    If they farted in the last 10 years that is a decline or waiver.

    It is pronounced show-gren's

    My wife has dry eye. As part of the evaluation the doc checked her for Sjogren's.
