The cost of a universal life policy is lower than other types of coverage, but there are many factors to consider, including the age of the policyholder, the age when the policy was purchased, whether or not the policy is in a company-sponsored plan, the coverage the policy provides, and whether or also the policy covers a life event such as birth or death.
The policy will cover your entire life, but it’s likely to cover some of your major expenses, such as medical expenses and funeral expenses, as well as some other life expenses such as car repairs.
It also may cover life insurance related to certain conditions, such, chronic health conditions, mental health issues and medical debt.
The coverage may be limited to certain insurance plans, so if you buy an ACA-compliant life insurance plan that offers coverage for a certain number of conditions, for example, you can’t receive universal life coverage from another plan.
Even though it’s an ACA compliant plan, universal life is not necessarily more affordable than other insurance options.
The policy’s deductible is only $1,500 and the annual premium is $1.99 per year.

The number of people who have universal life policies has dropped from 8.3 million in 2018 to 6.4 per 100,000 in 2020, according a study published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
