Enabling your employees to manage the cost of cancer: Financial help when it’s most needed
About one million people are diagnosed with cancer each year.1 But the good news is that more and more people are surviving it.2 If one of your employees is diagnosed with cancer, they’ll likely face a financial burden that they may need help managing. And often, they’re not aware that they may have major monetary gaps – even if they have medical and disability coverage.
Cancer treatment can require multiple hospital visits, as well as expensive medications. Coping with cancer also puts pressure on meeting everyday expenses, including child care, groceries, utilities, rent, and mortgage payments.
Cancer insurance can cover your employees, and their dependents, by providing payments directly to the employee for covered cancer-related expenses, which can relieve a lot of the financial strain. These payments are made regardless of any other insurance coverage.
As an employer, you can make a vital difference by offering employees the ability to protect themselves financially, while building an attractive benefits package. You can offer this coverage affordably to employees, at no additional cost to you. Employees who have a family history of cancer will particularly appreciate this benefit.
