Safeguard your finances from the devastating cost of cancer treatment.
In addition to the critical challenge cancer poses to one’s health, it can quickly become a serious financial burden. Even the best of health plans can leave you with deductibles, copays and costs for out-of-network care. Since disability plans only cover a portion of income, there could be a significant gap between your income and your family's everyday living expenses, such as the mortgage, rent, utilities, car payments, groceries and child care payments.
