What is cancer insurance?
A cancer diagnosis can be devastating, both personally and financially. Cancer insurance can provide financial assistance for those diagnosed with cancer. With 61% of cancer expenses coming from indirect, non-medical costs (1), it is likely that major medical coverage will not cover all the costs associated with a cancer diagnosis.
Supplementing a major medical plan with cancer insurance may help pay for related expenses, such as:
- Co pays and deductibles
- Experimental treatment
- Specialty hospitals
- Travel expenses
- Help at home
- Child care expenses
Why do I need cancer insurance?
With cancer insurance, you can focus on your treatment, while your benefits can help ease the financial costs. With cancer insurance, benefits are paid to you, so you choose how to spend them.
