Just as cancer diagnoses are increasing, so are the costs to treat them. The current out-of-pocket cost for cancer treatment is $1,266 a month1, and cancer costs have been rising about 5% every year.2

Cancer insurance helps your employees access the procedures and screenings they need, with benefits paid directly to the employees, regardless of their medical insurance. It’s a way to relieve their financial burden during a time of stress – and to make your benefits package more comprehensive.

The payments can be used for any purpose such as:

  • Copays, deductibles or coinsurance for cancer procedures and treatments
  • Experimental treatments not covered by health insurance
  • Transportation to a specialized care facility or lodging
  • Everyday expenses, like rent, mortgage, groceries or other bills
