United Benefits - Cancer Care & Dread Disease Insurance



Cancer Care and Dread Disease Insurance 

According to the National Health Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program, roughly 1.9 million people had a cancer diagnosis in 2021. About 2,650 men and 281,550 women will receive a breast cancer diagnosis, which is the most common cancer diagnosis. The National Cancer Institute forecasts that roughly 39.5% of men and women will develop cancer at some point during their lives.

Cancer care and dread disease insurance is designed to help cover the out-of-pocket costs in the event of a diagnosis. If you’re not sure what this is or how it can help you, we’ll outline all of this information below.

What is cancer care and dread disease insurance? 

As the name suggests, it can help cover the costs associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and other dread diseases. All benefits are paid directly to you, are tax-free, and can be used however you see fit.

You can use payments to maintain your quality of life or pay for expenses that your insurance won’t cover, such as experimental treatments, child care, costs, transportation, lodging, and more. 

In addition to cancer, it also covers other dread diseases such as lupus, multiple sclerosis, and tuberculosis. 

Do I need cancer care insurance?

Cancer care insurance can benefit everyone. Chances of developing a type of cancer increase as you age, so it’s a good idea to have coverage that can help pay for unexpected expenses you may incur during the diagnosis and treatment process of your disease.

No one wants to get a cancer or dread disease diagnosis. Having coverage can give you peace of mind, just like regular health insurance.
