Should I Buy Cancer Insurance?

Every year, more and more people are diagnosed with cancer. Did you know that this year, roughly 1.9 million people will be diagnosed with cancer in the United States? An estimated 287,850 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and an estimated 268,490 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. About every 2 minutes, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed in the U.S.

Unfortunately, in addition to bearing the physical and emotional toll of this disease, patients are often saddled with financial burdens when medical insurance falls short or income is compromised. If you're diagnosed with cancer, the last thing you need is to think about the cost of medical expenses. 

While it’s difficult to be emotionally prepared for the ups and downs experienced during a cancer diagnosis, you can be financially prepared for the costs of treatment. 

Why should you consider cancer insurance:

The unexpected out-of-pocket expenses of cancer recovery, such as transportation to chemotherapy, copays, and deductibles, can add up fast. What's more, two thirds of cancer recovery costs are non-medical, such as covering the mortgage, child care, and other household expenses. Cancer insurance can help you pay for all of these expenses.

How does it work:

Our policies are flexible and can be tailored to your needs and budget.

  • For a cost-effective monthly premium, you select a base policy with a benefit amount of $10,000 to $100,000.
  • Policies can be issued from ages from 18 – 89 and can include coverage for you and your dependents.
  • The cash benefits are paid in a lump sum if you are diagnosed with cancer.

You can choose to add more benefits for an additional premium, such as Intensive Care Unit coverage, Lump Sum Heart Attack and Stroke Insurance, and Cash Value Rider.
