  Evidence of Insurability  (EOI):

  • Also known as "evidence of good health" is the process by which The Standard determines if a person is healthy enough to be considered eligible for the amount of insurance coverage they are requesting. 
  • Depending upon when you enroll for coverage, or the amount of coverage you are requesting, you may be required to complete EOI prior to coverage becoming effective.
