Life Insurers in Florida Not Able to Study the Genetic Inheritance of Potential Customers

Such a taboo is valid at federal level; however, it does not apply to life insurance companies. The document has been transferred to the State Governor office that can either veto the law or sign it.

“Although innumerable quantity of Floridians used DNA tests to learn more about their origins or identify potential health risks, they did not agree with this information dissemination,” said Senator Kelli Stargel.

The American Board of Life Insurers that opposed this proposal did not comment on the final version of the bill.
