The c-word used to spell out certain death.
While being diagnosed with cancer still strikes a blow, the advances in treatments nowadays have changed our perception.
No longer do cancer patients plan their final days – they now formulate a battle plan to beat the disease. However, as any commander in chief will attest, winning a war requires ample financing. Ensure you are adequately covered against this dreaded disease: Breast cancer is the second most common cancer with nearly 1.7 million new cases reported in 2012. It is vital to ensure you have sufficient FEMALE CANCER INSURANCE.
Making The Best Cancer Treatments Affordable
With the economic pinch that has taken its toll on South African household budgets, many people look at cutting their medical costs as a means of saving on expenses. This is a difficult decision to make as it may limit your access to the best facilities and treatment available. Very often the best intentions leave the vulnerable at risk – lacking appropriate female cancer cover.
Knowing that breast cancer, for example, has an average global five-year relative survival rate, which has improved from 75 percent in the mid-1970s to 90 percent today, is reassuring. Less reassuring, however, is the knowledge that the most specialised oncologist required for your treatment, has opted to contract out of medical aid and charge private rates.
On top of your monthly medical aid contribution, you may find yourself also having to fork out for private cash rates which are often significantly higher than medical aid rates.
To avoid being out of pocket in this stressful time of need, having a female cancer policy to cover this type of shortfall can literally be a lifesaver.
While we at Total Risk Administrators SA sincerely hope that you will not have to deal with a diagnosis of cancer, we trust that we can offer you peace of mind with our Gap Cover product options, or our Femme Cover product (a female cancer policy). Please contact us for more information.
