Finances! Thirty-six percent of cancer patients deplete their savings and 24 percent borrow against their retirement plans. Out-of-pocket medical expenses are on the rise; planning ahead is necessary.
Although we know cancer can strike anyone at any age, genetically, we know now that diseases like cancer or heart attacks or strokes run in families. Check your grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, and siblings' health histories. They are often indicative of your future health too.
Benefits can allow you to seek out-of-network or not-covered cost without worrying. Bills can be paid, which helps give your family peace of mind and allows extra time off work. An example of the cost for a $10k cancer lump sum cash payout upon first diagnosis, for a 40-year-old female, is less than $10 per month. Critical care plans, no matter whatever healthcare options are offered, can provide funds your family will need so you can focus on recovery.
