The Need for Cancer Insurance

In the United States men have slightly less than a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than 1 in 3.

Hopefully, you have major medical insurance to help pay some of the medical costs should you require treatment or hospitalization for cancer. But did you know that many expenses associated with the treatment of cancer are non-medical and may not be covered under your major medical policy? State Securities’ Supplemental Cancer Policy includes benefits that can help pay for the non-medical expenses associated with the treatment of cancer. Benefits are paid directly to the insured, unless they are assigned, and are paid in addition to any other insurance you may have for covered treatment. We also offer a supplemental hospital income policy with benefits for hospitalization due to any covered illness or injury. You can apply for individual or family coverage.

In addition to cancer coverage, the supplemental insurance pays you benefits for 20 other specified diseases, including: Muscular Dystrophy, Multiple Sclerosis and Sickle Cell Anemia.
