Despite having health insurance, cancer patients are running up large debts, filing for personal bankruptcy and even delaying or foregoing treatment because they can't afford care. Advancements in technology, new treatments, and drugs have substantially improved survival rates. Today it is estimated that there are over 9 million people in the U.S. living with cancer. This is the good news! The bad news is that survival for many is based on an ongoing regimen of treatment, medication, and years of follow up monitoring and expenses.

Cancer Insurance helps provide tax free cash for those things not paid for by health insurance.

Some Indirect Costs of Cancer:

  • Loss of wages for the patient or spouse/caregiver
  • Special diets
  • Special equipment needed for the home
  • Experimental treatments and/or participation in clinical trials
