All benefits in a cancer policy are paid directly to you, the insured, regardless of any other medical coverage. Rates are typically age banded and do not increase with age.
Vermont Cancer Insurance has become popular primarily due to the devastating nature of the disease on families, the huge medical costs involved in treatment and the increasing rates of both incidents of the disease and survival rates with proper treatment.
Vermont Cancer Insurance policies act to supplement existing health plans and can offer many different benefits as outlined below. It should be noted however that individual policies may differ greatly and benefits are ONLY paid in the event of an occurrence of this disease.
The facts are startling: 1 in 2 American men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in their lifetimes*. Though you can take steps to lower your risk of developing cancer—eat healthy foods, exercise, wear sunscreen and stop smoking—cancer can still affect almost anyone.
Worse, your health insurance may not cover all of the costs of treating cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 65% of cancer related expenses aren’t covered by regular health insurance*. But you can still protect yourself and your assets from the cost of cancer with a supplemental cancer insurance policy.
Find out if you need this kind of coverage and how to get it.
Why Vermont Cancer Insurance?
The high incidence of cancer means that you or someone in your family may develop cancer at some point. And while your health insurance policy may cover a portion of physician, hospital, cancer therapy or prescription drug bills, it probably doesn’t cover them in full.
And your insurance isn’t likely to touch the other major costs of cancer, including loss of income, transportation, childcare, housekeeping and home nursing expenses. If you or another family member is unable to fulfill his or her usual responsibilities while ill, your family and your family’s finances could suffer greatly.
What it covers
Vermont Cancer insurance provides benefits in addition to your other medical or disability insurance.
Who needs it?
You may not need Vermont Cancer Insurance, but you might want to consider this supplemental coverage. You should think about purchasing Vermont Cancer Insurance if:
- You have a family history of cancer. (Although, if you’ve already been diagnosed with cancer in the past, you probably won’t qualify for coverage.
- You don’t have enough in savings to pay medical bills your regular health insurance won’t cover.
- You are your family’s sole wage earner.
- You are concerned about protecting your family’s financial assets.
