No one likes to hear the word ‘cancer’. Even with so many advances in treatment options, it’s still a little bit scary. Almost scarier is the expense – and many cancer treatments can create a huge financial burden if they are not covered by your medical aid.
What’s more, women face a completely different set of potential health complications. No matter what your age, or whether you’ve had children or not, women are at risk of developing certain types of cancer that are specific to female organs, especially the reproductive system. The problem is that many medical aid schemes do not have a female cancer policy that covers these illnesses by default.
If the worst happens and you are diagnosed with a female specific cancer, it’s vital to consider additional female cancer insurance to ensure that you are adequately covered. Total Risk Administrators offers female cancer cover – Femme Cover – as a health insurance option that can be utilized in addition to your medical aid policy.
Illnesses that you, as a woman, may be at risk for – and that are covered by Femme Cover – include:
- Cervical Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Vaginal Cancer
- Uterine Cancer
- Ovarian Cancer
- Bladder Cancer
- Cancer of the Fallopian Tubes
All of the above cancers are covered by Femme Cover upon confirmed diagnosis, with a lump sum benefit of up to R100 000 per occurrence, with payout for multiple occurrences, provided that they are unrelated.
