Webinar: Life Re Forum Innovation Series: Mental Health Underwriting – updating for current medical practices

This event is available on:


Traditional approaches to mental health underwriting are based on historic data and medical practices.  These practices have moved on significantly, impacting on how we interpret historic data and the impact on future mortality and morbidity. 

This session will cover how we have challenged conventional approaches to underwriting and risk selection to develop an approach that aligns current practices, customer and broader interests with robust risk assessment.
