Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance- Cancer Indemnity Insurance
Policy Series B70000
In 2018, an estimated 1,735,350 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States.1
You'd expect your insurance company to cover your medical expenses in the event of a cancer diagnosis. Yet most major medical plans are designed to cover 70% - 80% of the costs, potentially leaving you with $24,000 - $36,000 in out of pocket expenses.2
That's where Aflac supplemental insurance comes in. We pay cash benefits directly to you (unless assigned otherwise), so you can use anyway you see fit. We want you to be able to focus on your recovery, not your finances.
How does an Aflac cancer insurance policy work?
You never know what the future could hold, which is why it’s so important to help protect yourself with Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance. These plans don’t just help with medical expenses. Rather, they pay you cash directly, unless assigned—instead of a doctor or hospital—to help you manage expenses like bills, rent, car payments, groceries, child care and more. Cancer is expensive, but with Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance, patients can focus on the most important thing: getting better.
Step 1 - You come down with a fever.
After frequent infections and a high fever, you decide to head to your physician to see what’s the matter.
Step 2 - Time for some tests.
The physician recommends a bone marrow biopsy to check for cancer.
Step 3 - You receive your diagnosis.
The biopsy results are in, and unfortunately they show you have leukemia.
Step 4 - You begin treatment.
Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance helps with medical expenses like chemotherapy and with non-medical expenses like travel and lodging to help keep life as normal as possible for you and your family.
