Who needs cancer insurance?
After age 40 women and men face a significant and increasing risk of cancer. We all hope it never happens to us. But it can and it does.
This year 1.8 million Americans will hear the dreaded words ‘you have cancer’. Most will be treated and the majority will survive.
What won’t survive is any savings they put away for their kids education or their retirement. Health insurance plans today often require that you pay a high deductible amount. Most health plans also require co-pays. Those costs can add up to thousands of dollars. And, not everything is covered when you have cancer.
Ouch. As if getting cancer wasn’t bad enough, you now face thousands of dollars of bills.
Plus you will probably take time off from work to undergo treatments and recover. If you are married your spouse may also take time off. That’s two reduced incomes just when you need money the most.
