Cancer Insurance 101
How Will You Help Cover Those Remaining Expenses If A Cancer Diagnosis Hits Your Employee or Their Family?
It’s important to consider how your employees would manage if they or a family member were diagnosed with cancer and missed work for treatment. The reality is that financial barriers can often delay care, and that can have serious repercussions. While more people are living with cancer today than ever before (more than 15.5 million Americans nationwide in 2016), the financial impact of cancer doesn’t go away.
What does cancer insurance cover?
Cancer insurance policies not only help with the treatment costs of cancer, but allow your employees to focus on getting well instead of on the bills. In the event of a cancer diagnosis, policyholders receive cash benefits* to use as they like. A cancer insurance policy can also help protect the policyholder’s finances from expenses that aren’t covered by health insurance, including experimental cancer treatments, out-of-network specialists, deductibles and more.
Who needs cancer insurance?
Cancer insurance is an option everyone should consider. That’s because individuals and families affected by cancer shouldn’t have to decide between medical treatments and making ends meet. Yet this could be the case for a growing number of workers who are facing high out-of-pocket expenses, despite having comprehensive health insurance. A voluntary cancer insurance policy could make a difference to their personal well-being, families and future. With cancer insurance, treatment and recovery can be the primary focus.
