Is Cancer Insurance Worth It?


At least once per week I hear people say "I have never heard of Cancer Insurance." In fact, Cancer Insurance has been around for decades. Whether you have experienced Cancer personally or know someone close to you who has, you know that navigating a cancer treatment journey can be financially challenging. The fact of the matter is health insurance does not cover treatment 100%. High deductibles, co-pays & co-insurance can mean a lot of out-of-pocket costs. Often costs like travel & lodging are part of a patient's treatment journey.

Cancer Insurance pays cash to the insured, starting with an Initial Diagnosis payment followed by payments towards treatments including chemotherapy, radiation & hospitalization and for things like travel & lodging. The design of the coverage is to keep the insured financially whole during what is already an emotionally challenging time.

So is Cancer Insurance worth it? It's a personal choice, of course. Very often, clients with a family history cancer will choose this protection. With an estimated 235,760 to be diagnosed in 2021 in the U.S., Cancer Insurance may be considered a practical choice. The fact is the coverage offers peace of mind and is available Direct to Individuals as well as an Employee Benefit.
