A simple rule of thumb for medically underwritten life insurance for mental illness of any type is, can the person with mental illness hold down a steady full time job. If the mental illness is so well controlled by medication or therapy as to make that possible, or there is no need of treatment in order to live a normal life, then usually that person can obtain a medically underwritten life insurance policy.
If someone is on Disability for the express purpose of mental illness, simplified and guaranteed issue plans are available.
Of course, other factors come into play in deciding what type of policy the person with mental illness can get, and finding his/her best price. There include whether there has been a hospitalization for mental illness, suicidal thoughts or attempt, multiple medications needed for one diagnosis, etc. But the vast majority of persons with mental illness can get life insurance.
