A clause in a policy providing that after a policy has been in effect for a given length of time (two or three years), the insurer shall not be able to contest the statements contained in the application. A Health Insurance provision also states that after that time no claim shall be denied or reduced on the grounds that a condition not excluded by name at the time of issue, existed prior to the effective date. In Life policies, if an insured lied as to the condition of his health at the time the policy was taken out, that lie could not be used to contest payment under the policy if death occurred after the time limit stated in the incontestable clause.
