Another reason to consider cancer insurance or critical illness insurance

Did you know that it is estimated that 60% of the costs of fighting cancer and similar diseases is related to non-medical expenses? It doesn’t take much brainstorming to come up with some reasons why. The biggest reason, of course, is that you are typically going to miss a lot of work if you find yourself in that battle. And the mortgage company and others who send you bills won’t stop doing so. You may also find yourself needing to travel to receive more specialized care in another city.
If you’re like most people, you know someone or are at least aware of situations where people have been diagnosed with cancer. There is so much to deal with that you just don’t want to find yourself and your family wrestling with serious financial stress. That’s why it may be worth considering a cash cancer or critical illness policy, which pays you a lump sum (usually in the $25,000-$50,000 range) should you get that dreaded diagnosis. That money will help you meet your health insurance deductible and have plenty left over to cover the other unexpected expenses. And it’s not very expensive.
