Cancer insurance helps ease the financial burden while you heal. Every year, more and more people are diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, in addition to bearing the physical and emotional toll of this disease, patients are often saddled with financial burdens when medical insurance falls short or income is compromised. If you're diagnosed with cancer, the last thing you need is to think about the cost. Cancer insurance can help you handle medical plan deductibles, co-pays and other out-of-pocket costs; non-medical expenses such as transportation to treatment facilities; even everyday living expenses such as groceries, rent and mortgage payments. The unexpected out-of-pocket expenses of cancer recovery, such as transportation to chemotherapy, copays, and deductibles, can add up fast. What's more, two thirds of cancer recovery costs are non-medical, such as covering the mortgage, child care, and other household expenses. Cancer insurance can help you pay for all of these expenses.
