When you get a diagnosis of Cancer, the last thing you need to think about is paying for treatment. Even if you already have health insurance, Cancer brings many out-of-pocket expenses that your insurance may not cover and may cost you and your family thousands of dollars.
1 out of 3 Americans have a risk of developing cancer over their lifetime,1 and cancer patients are three times as likely to go bankrupt than people without it. 2 That’s why it’s important to prepare for unexpected costs such as travel to treatment centers, loss of income, deductibles, copays and more if you are diagnosed.
Cancer Insurance offered at your workplace can help protect your savings. Payments go right to you – not to the doctor or hospital so you can also use your benefits to pay for childcare, your mortgage, household bills, or any other expense.
Good financial health and security begins with the benefits offered at your workplace. Take advantage of yours when it’s time to enroll.
