Why Consider Cancer Insurance?

The total financial impact of cancer includes direct and indirect costs. Many persons diagnosed with cancer uses all or most of their savings because of the financial cost  of dealing with cancer*. The problems are significantly worse for those without insurance.

No one wants to experience a cancer diagnosis, but the fact is that the risk of getting cancer is great. In the United States, approximately 41 in every 100 men and 39 in every 100 women are at risk of developing cancer at some point in their lives.. (American Cancer Society, Cancer Facts & Figures 2023, page 4) A cancer/specified-disease insurance policy is designed to provide you with cash benefits during covered cancer treatments.

Cancer can occur at any time regardless of lifestyle, yet too many people lack cancer insurance coverage to help pay for additional costs associated with treatment.
