Cancer Insurance

Who needs CancerCare+?

Cancer is an equal opportunity enemy. Cancer affects every race, ethnic group, and gender; and it doesn't just affect the person who is diagnosed, but their whole family.

  • Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. and accounts for one of every four deaths.*

  • The risk of being diagnosed with cancer increases with age. About 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in persons 55 and older.*

  • In the U.S., men have almost a 50% lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than 33%.*

  • Almost 16 million Americans (6%) were unable to obtain care due to the cost.*

Why CancerCare+?

You can use CancerCare+ for coverage in addition to other insurance; and the benefits are paid directly to you, to be used however you need to use them. You can use CancerCare+ for costs associated with:

  • First Occurrence: After the original diagnosis of cancer, not including skin, $1000 will be paid to you for you to use as you see fit.

  • Overnight Hospital Stays: drugs and diagnostic tests, doctor visits, and private nurse.

  • In or out of the hospital coverage: surgery (according to the surgical schedule), anesthesia, second & third surgical opinion, blood, radiation, chemotherapy, prescriptions, anti-nausea medication, and inpatient hospice care (if you are terminally ill).

  • Outpatient coverage: surgically implanted breast prosthesis, non-surgical breast prosthesis, ambulance transportation to and from hospital(s) and travel costs.
