What to look for in a good cancer insurance quote
Obviously you want to compare prices. Each insurance company sets their own prices and they can vary significantly.
Also you want to read the definitions of coverage. Policies typically offer Full Benefit coverage which means you’ll get 100% of the benefit amount. They may also offer Partial Benefit (often 25%) for certain types of cancer conditions.
Is there a termination age when your coverage ends? That may be age 70 or older. For many people coverage only until age 70 is desirable. It’s usually cheaper too because the risk of cancer increases so significantly at older ages.
Comparing your employer-offered plan

Here are things to know.
Some employer-offered plans charge the same rate to BOTH smokers and non-smokers. That generally means non-smokers are ‘subsidizing’ the higher risk plan participants (those who use tobacco products).
Plans may charge women and men the same amount. Cancer risk by age varies. Women tend to get cancers at younger ages. Breast cancer is a significant risk. Again, it pays to compare.
