Medical Underwriter Resume Samples

A Medical Underwriter works for the insurance agencies and insurance carriers and works to minimize the potential financial loss relating to providing health or life insurance policies. A well-written Medical Underwriter Resume mentions the following core duties and tasks – reviewing application files for health and life insurance policies; determining eligibility coverage, premium rates, and exclusion policies for consumers and businesses; helping to determine the amount of financial risk that occur as a result of insuring individual or group of people, making decisions on how to and how not to underwrite an insurance policy; and evaluating the files of potential insurance policyholders.

Employers want their Medical Underwriters to have a degree in areas such as finance or its equivalent. Prior work experience in the industry is also expected. However, new underwriters are provided on-the-job training to start their career in this line. Besides, the potential candidates are expected to possess knowledge of newly approved government regulations and tax laws.
