When an individual applies for certain types of insurance policies, such as: Disability Income Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, and/or various types of Life Insurance, that individual must go through the medical underwriting component of the insurance company's overall underwriting process. The medical aspect of the underwriting process is unique to each particular type of insurance. For example, the required medical underwriting for Long Term Care Insurance is very different from the required medical underwriting for Life Insurance.
One routine component of the medical underwriting process involves something known as the Client Medical Interview (CMI). When it comes to an applicant's medical history, it should be noted that every insurance company has its own unique process and terminology associated with the collection of necessary data.
When applying for MassMutual insurance policies, there are two ways in which your Client Medical Interview can be completed. There is the Client Medical Online Interview and the Client Medical Telephone Interview (Tele-CMI). The interview allows necessary medical information to be gathered while working around your schedule and technology makes the whole process convenient, easy, and secure. The links and videos listed below provide an outline of MassMutual's Client Medical Interview options. Please also note that when working with other insurance companies, the medical aspect of the overall underwriting process may differ from MassMutual's process.

The Paramedical Exam
Additionally, whenever medical underwriting is required, it may also become necessary to take advantage of the services of a paramedical company, which has trained personnel that are able to help insurance applicants complete their paramedical exams. A paramedical exam is commonly referred to as a “paramed,” and paramedical companies provide laboratory testing as well as risk assessment services in conjunction with their paramedical exams.
At C.M. Carrillo Financial Advising, we work with a paramedical company called APPS Para Medical Services. The people over at APPS Para Medical Services are very good at what they do and they are always more than happy to work around your schedule.
* Clients who are not in The Greater St. Louis Area may need to work with another paramedical company in order to complete their paramed.
