Why do you need to know my height and weight?

Body Mass Index describes the relationship between an individual’s height and weight. A simple calculation using your height and weight generates a number that falls into one of four categories: ‘Underweight’, ‘Normal’, ‘Overweight’ and ‘Obese’.

Some insurers like to use Body Mass Index as a predictor of health and use this information when they’re setting the prices they charge. Other insurers are much more liberal and it affects their prices less. Whatever your BMI, knowing this information will help us find the right policy for you.
