In Brief
Curious about RGA's insights around alternative evidence and other underwriting trends? Contact us to learn more. 

Not all alternative evidence is created equal. While digital underwriting has become more common, there are things underwriters should know about speed, cost, and quality of alternative evidence – as well as what the future is likely to hold.

In this video, RGA's Jackie Waas defines what is meant by "alternative evidence," explains why it is important, and addresses five key questions:

  • Is all alternative evidence equal? 
  • What is the variability in formatting? 
  • What is misunderstood about the value of alternative evidence? 
  • Should underwriters view alternative evidence as a stopgap for the pandemic? 
  • What is the value of medical history and how can digital health data provide it?
