Histroy of ruptured brain aneurysm. Life expectancy?

I suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm 10 years ago. I returned to work after about 6 months and had no deficits. I also quit smoking at the same time. I just lost my job and I'm trying to get health insurance. I was denied due to the aneurysm. I'm wondering now what the insurance companies use as far as life expectancy after an aneurysm and what medical studies they use?

Thank you for posting your query.
If the aneurysm was treated (clipping or coiling) and the aneurysm got obliterated, as checked by an angiogram, you could expect an almost normal life span.
However, if it was not treated, the risk of re-rupture is about 2% per year, which could reduce the life span.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
