If I’m A Shift Worker, Will I Pay More For Health Insurance?

If your profession involves shift work, some health insurance providers may consider you to be more susceptible to stress-related health problems. Working a night shift does not have to increase your health insurance premiums.

Shift workers experience changes to their biological clock that may result in health problems, such as abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea, according to new research found in the American Journal of Gastroenterology.

Shift workers are more likely to have disturbances in sleep quality and they often sleep fewer hours per week. In fact, it has been found that only 15 percent of night shift workers get the necessary 7 to 8 hours of sleep they need each night.

Getting advice from a good insurance agent should be your first step in finding a health insurance policy. An experienced agent that sells policies from many insurance companies will often be able to help you get a better rate than an agent who sells insurance from a single company.
