A cancer diagnosis can evoke various emotions for the uncertain and challenging time ahead. Despite significant advances in cancer treatment, South African women still have a 1 in 8 chance of developing cancer.
While cancer can certainly be overwhelming, you do have the option not to worry about the added financial strain. Our Female Cancer Cover policies provide specific cover for female cancers, giving you peace of mind that you will be covered should you be diagnosed with cancer.
Here is a look at what to expect with our new Female Cancer Cover product that is launching soon.
What types of cancer are covered by Female Cancer Cover?
Our Female Cancer Cover policies provide cover for a range of cancers that specifically affect women, such as:
- Cervical Cancer Uterine Cancer Breast Cancer Ovarian Cancer Vaginal Cancer Bladder Cancer Cancer of the Fallopian Tubes
What treatments are covered by Female Cancer Cover?
Some medical aid schemes do not offer comprehensive female cancer benefits, often resulting in coverage shortfalls. This is where Female Cancer Cover will offer specific benefits to a policyholder and will pay out more than once via EFT should there be an unrelated occurrence. Our plans include the following benefits for treatment options:
This option pays out a lump sum cash benefit of R50 000 to the policyholder upon a confirmed diagnosis of a listed female cancer. The monthly premium is age dependent and is between R130 to R250.
A R100 000 cash lump sum benefit will be paid to the policyholder upon confirmed diagnosis of one of the stipulated female cancers. The monthly premium is age dependent and is between R225 and R500.
A R150 000 cash lump sum benefit will be paid to the policyholder upon confirmed diagnosis of one of the stipulated female cancers. The monthly premium is age dependent and is between R315 and R750.
The Female Cancer Cover policy has a general 3 month waiting period, and an exclusion will apply to pre-existing conditions where the policyholder should have sought or has sought prior medical advice and/or treatment.
