  1. Interesting article. I never heard of accelerated underwriting. The only business or financial training I received in medical school was fourth year from my cardiology professor. I wonder whether medical schools include any business training now.

    • Based upon what I know from my son, nope. Accelerated UW means no exam or blood work. We can get that from medical records, prescription DB, claims data and all sorts of other sources you non-insurance people have no clue about. Evil? Most of what we can get is public information. Think about that.
