Cancer

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 . A 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
  • Child care and household help
  • Normal living expenses, such as your car payment, mortgage/rent and utility bills
