What is Cancer Cover Insurance?

When you are told you have cancer, the diagnosis affects not only you, but also your family and friends. You may feel scared, uncertain, or angry about the unwanted changes cancer will bring to your life and theirs. The emotional impact of dealing with a cancer diagnosis can be very difficult. The second worry is often money. How do I support my family, run a home, continue to pay bills during my treatment? What if I have no health Insurance? What if I can’t work?

This added financial stress can cause serious emotional pressure during this difficult time. Thankfully our policy covers you in payments of up to €64,000 to help you through any financial worries. There are no restrictions on how you spend the money, it could help pay for child care, help around the home, and even the little things you take for granted like parking charges, getting to the shops or the doctors. It can also be used to help pay your medical bills or on a relaxing holiday to help you recuperate.
