Cancer insurance is an employee benefit that can complement your other insurance offerings. While, most people can appreciate the importance of having health and disability insurance, the costs of cancer can go well beyond what they cover. Cancer insurance may be an affordable way to provide additional funds to help cover out-of pocket expenses.
The total patients costs range from nearly $6,000 a year on an employer-sponsored plan to a little more than $10,000.1 Copays and deductibles, out-of-network and experimental treatments, home health care needs, and travel are just some of the costs a person could face if they are diagnosed with cancer. And that’s on top of everyday bills such as groceries, utilities, car payments and others they need to keep up with. It’s hardly surprising that people diagnosed with cancer are 2.65 times more likely to file for bankruptcy.2
With cancer insurance, an insured person receives a lump-sum amount for the diagnosis & treatment of cancer which they can spend however they choose. Group cancer insurance is an affordable way for you to address rising medical costs while strengthening your employee benefit package.
We understand that every company is different, which is why we offer three plans with increasing coverage levels: Value, Advantage, and Premier. This allows you to choose what might be the best cancer insurance coverage for your company at a price point that fits your or your employees' budget.
Depending on the plan you select, your employees can receive payment for over 30 covered services related to:
- Annual cancer screenings
Some of our plans may also cover these specific services:
- Alternative care
- Anti-nausea medicine
- Experimental treatment
- Home health care
- Inpatient special nursing
It's safe to say we probably all know someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.
- An estimated 1,735,350 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in 20183
- Approximately 39.3% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime4
While cancer survival rates are on the rise, thanks to early diagnosis and advanced medicine, the financial effects resulting from the treatment of cancer may be devastating without cancer insurance.
