Why Cancer Insurance?
You are probably thinking, "I have health insurance, why would I need cancer insurance too?" Cancer insurance provides a safety net in fighting the financial consequences of cancer that result beyond traditional health insurance. Living expenses such as car payments, mortgages or rent and utility bills continue, whether you are able to work or not. Your spouse or another family member may have to take time off of work to take you to treatments or help take care of you, so the loss of income may be doubled. There also could be the cost of meals, lodging, fuel, childcare or household help. Manhattan Life Assurance pays benefits directly to you and you can use the money however you decide.
