Life happens. Protect yourself and your family with a Cancer & Heart Attack or Stroke Insurance Plan
Cancer, heart attack, and stroke can happen at any time to anyone. Even those who live a healthy lifestyle run the risk of being diagnosed with one or more of these illnesses.
Half of all men and one third of all women will develop cancer during their lifetimes and about 77% of all cancers are diagnosed in persons 55 or older. Stroke reduces mobility in more than half of stroke survivors 65 and older. And the average age of first heart attack is 64.7 years for men and 72.2 years for women, according to the American Heart Association.
The good news is that more and more
The costs of cancer, a heart attack, or a stroke go far beyond just medical bills
One in five people with health insurance who are diagnosed with cancer go through all or most of their savings. Most of the costs associated with cancer aren’t covered by Medicare. In fact, only 39% of the costs for cancer come from approved medical treatment.
Those diagnosed with cancer are potentially out thousands of dollars for uncovered costs like travel and lodging to specialty hospitals for medical care, deductibles/co-payments, and experimental treatments, in addition to the indirect costs like lost productivity and income.
You can protect against these costs with Cancer and Heart Attack or Stroke (CHAS) Insurance plans that offer an immediate lump sum payout once cancer, heart attack or a stroke is medically diagnosed. You have the freedom to use these funds however you choose. You can cover groceries, child care, in-home care, and other costs that Medicare and health insurance will not reimburse.
Other features of Cancer & Heart Attack or Stroke plans include:
- No additional premium for tobacco users
- Family rates and Individual and Spouse rates are based off the youngest spouse
- Guaranteed renewable as long as you pay premiums on time
- 30-day free look
Even if you’ve had cancer before, you still may be eligible for a plan. And a CHAS plan can be added at any time, not just during the Annual Election Period.
For less than a week of groceries, you too can receive a benefit amount from $5,000 to $75,000 to help manage expenses associated with your care. Even better, the policy is guaranteed renewable for life as long as the premiums are paid so you can have peace of mind in knowing you’ll be covered. At HealthSpire, we’re here to help.
