No one wants to experience a cancer diagnosis, but the fact is that the risk of getting cancer is great. In the United States, men have slightly less than a one in two lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than one in three (Cancer Facts and Figures 2012, American Cancer Society). Our cancer/specified-disease insurance policy is designed to provide you with cash benefits during covered cancer treatments.
A supplemental cancer/specified-disease insurance policy can also help protect your income and savings from expenses that aren’t covered by your major medical coverage, including:
- Out-of-pocket medical expenses
- Out-of-network specialists
- Experimental cancer treatment
- Travel and lodging when treatment is far from home
- Drug trials and special diet needs
While you can’t always predict the future, we believe it’s good to be prepared. Our cancer/specified-disease insurance is here to help you and your family better cope financially—and emotionally—if a positive diagnosis of cancer ever occurs. That way you can worry less about what may be lying ahead.
