Cancer Plans, Long Term Care Insurance and Disability Insurance
Approximately 1.6 million new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed in 2015, according to the Silver Book® Cancer Fact Sheet 1. Americans age 55 and over will comprise 78% of that estimate. There have been many breakthroughs in medicine and cancer treatments. The survival rate has gone up substantially, 40% over the last 40 years, but the cost of that treatment remains a financial burden for most individuals and families.
While fighting cancer, loss of income is a real possibility. In addition, the two basic costs associated with fighting cancer are Medical Expenses and Non-Medical Expenses. Some of the expenses you may incur include:
- Special Diets
- Family Care
- House Payment/Rent
- Car Payments
- Utilities (gas/electric/water)
Health Insurance Shortfalls (out of pocket expenses)
- Benefit Limitations
Studies in the “Breast Cancer Facts & Figures 2015-2016” from the American Cancer Society note that in 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among US women, as well as an estimated 60,290 additional cases of in situ breast cancer. Breast Cancer is a disease that can be lived with and a disease that can be beaten… give yourself the financial support needed to beat breast cancer, give yourself a fighting chance.
Out of pocket expenses for cancer can be paid for by drawing on your life savings, selling off your assets, and/or having Supplemental Insurance protection.
