Life Insurance Cancer Patients

A Guiding Hand for Cancer Patients to Secure Life Insurance

Securing Life Insurance after Treatment 

You or a loved one have cancer.

You are not alone:

  • An estimated 16 million Americans were diagnosed with cancer in 2012[1], and
  • The American Cancer Society predicts that 1 out of 3 people will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime[2]

Treatment for cancer is an emotional, physically demanding and too often overwhelming period in a patient’s life. The focus is fighting the disease, adhering to treatment regimens and generally taking care of yourself as best you can.

Life insurance is not usually on the To-Do list.

And yet, facing a life threatening diseased may be the inspiration for you to finally seek life insurance and ensure your loved ones and business entities are provided for.


Expect challenges when seeking life insurance after cancer

The reality is, patients who have been diagnosed with and treated for cancer often face difficulties finding qualified, affordable life insurance to protect their assets and their loved ones. Only a small percentage of insurance companies will write life insurance policies for people with chronic illnesses. Those that do often have disparate underwriting procedures, but at a minimum will require:

  • A defined waiting period after your last treatment
  • Detailed medical records regarding the grade, type and stage of your cancer and treatment method(s)
  • Your most recent test results and/or prognosis

Because each carrier may have varying information needs and requirements, it can be time consuming and frustrating shopping for life insurance without a knowledgeable and supportive resource to guide you through the process.
