Help clients share medical records instantly

Getting medical records in the traditional way for life insurance underwriting can often take weeks. We’re excited to share that Principal® is now working with Human API to allow clients to share their medical records electronically when needed. Digital records are available to the underwriter in minutes rather than weeks. This safe and secure method keeps information protected and allows the process to keep moving.

Watch a video from Human API to see the experience your clients will have.

Electronic delivery of policies makes getting the policy into the hands of the client faster and easier. Most financial institutions we do business with have approved our eDelivery solution. A small number have not (listed below). We’ll continue to work with each firm to gain approval of our eDelivery. In the meantime, starting May 4, all Principal® Term policies you write through any of these firms will be electronically delivered to your office. You’ll then need to print and physically deliver these policies to the client.
