Coverage cancer

Voluntary Cancer Coverage

Because of earlier diagnosis and improvements in treatment, the number of people surviving cancer has steadily increased over the past two decades, according to the National Cancer Institute.* The challenge is paying to fight a costly battle.

The expenses associated with cancer treatment, plus associated costs, can seem overwhelming to those affected — and their families — even if they have health benefits.

The value of Voluntary Cancer Coverage

Depending on the policy selected, cancer benefits provide payments that can be used to:
  • Support treatments critical to short- and long-term care
  • Protect assets after the diagnosis

Coverage also offers peace of mind when specialized healthcare, which may not be covered by other health insurance plans, is needed.

Cancer policy benefits can be paid through a lump sum or an annually restorable policy to help pay a variety of expenses associated with cancer care, including:
  • Out-of-pocket medical costs
  • Home healthcare
  • Travel to treatment facilities
  • Training and rehabilitation
  • Loss of income
  • Childcare

Plan benefit options

In addition, Humana offers a range of valuable plan options, including:
  • Annually restorable benefits
  • Travel and wellness benefits
  • Payment in addition to other coverage
  • Family coverage
