It is our position that the comprehensive needs of the cannabis community cannot be met through only one insurance employer and or provider.

How do we make money?

EgisLife does not charge insurance planning fees or subscriptions to use the system. It is provided as a free service to the cannabis community.

Insurance companies, upon the purchase of an insurance contract, compensate us. Our revenue does not come directly from our consumers.

Why does EgisLife emphasize “high-tech” and “high-touch”?

The cannabis community works within a high-tech world. Meaning, the use of mobile phones, tablets and computer to perform tasks is becoming an integral part of daily social living.

The community also recognizes the importance of high-touch when it comes to the complexity of insurance planning. Individuals are comforted knowing they have professionals to speak with if needed.

EgisLife created an environment that supports both perspectives. The public can apply for insurance at their digital convenience knowing they have a team of professionals available to answer questions if called upon.

Can we reduce your insurance premium rates?

Yes. Our custom rate process introduces data factors that can positively affect your premium rates.

Our specialty underwriters are given the opportunity to lower premium classifications by analyzing the unique data we provide them. Result being, a method to lower rates is introduced by EgisLife.

However, please understand that rate reduction can’t be achieved in every underwriting instance.

How do we choose which insurance companies to do business with?

What type of insurance does EgisLife provide?

Life Insurance. Health Insurance. Commercial and Personal Lines Insurance.

Does consuming cannabis automatically make me a smoker?

No. EgisLife has secured relationships with insurance providers that do not view Cannabis use as a smoker risk.

Will cannabis use be reported to any federal agencies or officials?

No. The life insurance industry is regulated by HIPPA. All medical records are required to be kept private, and cannot be shared with anyone without your permission.

What happens if I lie about using cannabis when applying for life insurance?

In the event of your death, a life insurance company can decline paying your beneficiary insurance proceeds. They may also report you to the Medical Information Bureau.

Contractually, they have the right to do so during the first 2 years of the policy. Point being, don’t lie. The cannabis community can secure coverage through EgisLife regardless of cannabis use.

What is the Medical Information Bureau?

The existence of the Medical Information Bureau (“MIB”) is one of the reasons why you should never lie on a life insurance application about cannabis use.

The MIB is a confidential, not-for-profit database used by insurance companies throughout North America.  The life insurance industry uses it to conduct a quick check of the medical information provided on your application to ensure that there is nothing in the database that conflicts with the answers you have provided to us.

Am I treated any differently if I’m medically prescribed cannabis?

It depends on the medical condition that is being treated. Cannabis use by itself is not the sole risk our insurance partners focus on. It is the underlying medical condition that will most likely affect premium rates.

EgisLife offers 3 different types of medical exam structures:

  • Guaranteed Issue Policies
    No medical exam required
