Cancer Insurance Helps To Relieve The Financial Burden
Think about it, most of us either have had or know someone who has had some form of cancer. Cancer treatment can be lengthy and costly. Cancer insurance can help to pay for some of the costs associated with the disease. It can help you to maintain financial security in the event of a cancer diagnosis. Plans are available for individuals and families. The plans we offer provide benefits for wellness screening and early detection of cancer as well.
Cancer treatment presents a significant financial burden for almost all patients. Even if the patient has health insurance, there will most likely be deductibles or co-pays to pay and annual or lifetime caps. Benefits are paid directly to you to use for the indirect, non-medical costs associated with cancer, such as lost wages and additional living expenses. Benefits are paid in addition to other insurance you may have with other insurance companies. The policies are guaranteed renewable as long as you pay your premium. Cancer insurance should never be a substitute for complete medical coverage as it only pays for a diagnosis of cancer.
