Life insurance after tx

I am in tx now- week 12 shot tonight.  When I am "cured" ( I guess that is the year time frame after tx and being clear) does anyone know if I will be able to increase my life insurance coverage or is the "liver disease" stigma always on your medical records??

I don' t know the exact answer to your question. But from what I do know, you will not be able to get life insurance. They test for HCV antibodies, and antibodies will stay in your blood even if you will clear the virus.

If memory serves me, several members stated after acheiving SVR they were approved for life insurance after a number of years.  Five years sticks in my mind, could have been less and I don't think it was an easy process but they did acquire life insurance.  I don't know how it works when the intent is to increase an existing life insurance benefit but logically it seems the same principal would apply.
