What is Cancer Insurance?
Guard your income with cancer insurance and it will assist with covering expenses from diagnosis through recovery.
Cancer Insurance helps provide a financial safety net that can assist with covering cancer-related expenses that medical insurance does not cover. Cancer Insurance will allow you to focus on recovery.
A financial burden does not have to follow a cancer diagnosis and Cancer Insurance helps you live well while getting well.
Most of us do not expect to face a serious illness like cancer. However, statistics show 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women develop cancer in their lifetime.1 Some look to family history to determine risk, but that often does not tell the whole story. While heredity and environmental factors can play a role, inherited genetic factors impact only about 5-10% of all cancers.
Due to early detection and more aggressive treatments many more people are surviving cancer. If you are given a cancer diagnosis, you might discover that your medical insurance will not cover everything. Regardless of your monthly financial obligations, you could incur costs for treatment and recovery, such as
- Deductibles and co-pays
- Out-of-network treatment
- Travel, lodging and meals during treatment
- Home health services
The need to scale back on work or take a leave of absence during treatment and recovery only adds to the stress. This is where supplemental cancer insurance helps. It assists with protecting you from financial hardship in the face of mounting cancer expenses.
Cancer will surely have an effect on your life, you should be able to focus on finding the best treatment and getting better – not on how you will pay your bills. Cancer insurance offers benefits to assist with out-of-pocket costs that may not be covered by your medical insurance, including expenses related to inpatient or outpatient treatment, surgery, travel, and recovery care.
