The costs associated with cancer are notoriously high, and not all of them are covered in basic medical health insurance. A Cancer Policy is an additional insurance option designed to provide financial support should you be diagnosed with cancer. Cancer Policies can vary widely in the types of payouts they make and services they cover. Fortunately, at ePlatinumHealth, our independent agents will be able to find a plan that satisfies your preferences. Cancer Policy plans are subject to eligibility, so those with preexisting conditions may not be eligible for coverage.
It is estimated that in 2017 there was over 1,600,000 new cancer diagnoses1. The lifetime risk of developing cancer is 38.5% in men and women2. Cancer is hugely stressful and treatment may be long, involved, and unpleasant. It will also certainly keep you out of work for some time, and unfortunately many employers do not offer short-term disability.
A Cancer Policy can help immensely so that a time of great personal stress need not be a time of financial stress, too. A Cancer Policy will help protect your assets should you be diagnosed, and may even help cover bills, transportation, and other services. If you have a family history of cancer it is an especially good idea to invest in a Cancer Policy as studies show the likelihood of diagnosis is higher for those with cancer in their immediate family.
Cancer can be unpleasant to think about or plan for, but sadly it is all too common. ePlatinumHealth agents want to help you find a plan that meets your needs AND your budget so you can worry less and live with confidence.
