Financial Protection for Breast Cancer

Colonial Life focuses on the costs of cancer so you can focus on the healing.

The American Cancer Society estimates that in 20151:

  • About 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
  • About 60,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 40,290 women will die from breast cancer.

And that doesn’t even include the more than 2,300 men who will be diagnosed.

If you or a loved one needed treatment for breast cancer, how would you cover all of the expenses? Health insurance can certainly help, but what about all of the other expenses that your health plan may not cover?

Our cancer insurance can help you pay for necessities such as:

  • Care at out-of-network specialty centers
  • Home health care
  • Experimental treatments
  • Lost income
  • Child care
  • Travel, lodging and meals during treatment
  • Deductibles and co-pays 

Good looking out

Many of our products provide prevention screening benefits that can help cover the costs of mammograms. These benefits helped Colonial Life policyholder Carol Brooks detect her breast cancer early. “I love the mammography benefit because it pays so quickly after my mammogram and reminds me to have it done.”

Join the conversation

Follow us on our social media channels for information on breast cancer and other financial protection products.
