Why Cancer Insurance?

  • In the U.S., men have about a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of developing cancer, and for women the risk is about 1 in 3.
  • Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S., exceeded only by heart disease.
More People are Surviving Cancer
  • The National Cancer Institute estimates that approximately 9.6 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive in 2000. Some of these indivdiuals were considerd cured, while others still had evidence of cancer and may still be undergoing treatments.
  • The 5-year relative rate for all cancers combined is 63%.

This coverage is offered on a guarantee issue basis. However, no benefits are payable for any loss during the first year of a Covered Person’s coverage as the result of a Pre-Existing Specified Disease. A Pre-Existing Specified Disease is defined as one for which, within twelve (12) months prior to the Covered Person’s effective date of coverage, medical advice, consultation, or treatment, including prescribed medications, was recommended or received from a member of the medical profession, or for which symptoms manifested ins such a manner as would cause an ordinarily prudent person to seek diagnosis, medical advice or treatment.
