Woman’s life insurance company drops her coverage

A woman in North Carolina has been told she’ll lose her life insurance coverage when her insurer drops her policy because of the Zika virus outbreak.

Amy Loeffler, 37, of Greensboro, has been with her insurance company, Avanti, since 2012.

She’s been insured under a different company, Life Insurance Co., for her husband, a nurse, who has also been with the company.

She said the company offered her a replacement policy, but the new policy was cheaper.

She said Avantis policy expired June 29.

She now is on her own insurance policy, and her husband has been using Life Insurance Corp., which she said is the best insurer in her area.

Amy said she was told she was out of options, and she had to pay $1,100 more for her policy than her original plan.

Amy and her partner are looking for another insurance company.
