Supplemental Cancer Policies Can Ease Financial, Emotional Burden of Diagnosis

Chicago (PRWEB) September 29, 2008 -- October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which marks an opportune time for women of all ages to assess their current insurance coverage to ensure they are protected from some of the costs associated with breast cancer. The expense of breast cancer often extends far beyond the medical cost of treatment alone, according to http://www.combinedinsurance.com/ [Combined Insurance], a leading provider of supplemental insurance policies like cancer care, as well as critical care, accident/disability and life insurance.

According to the American Cancer Society's Cancer Facts & Figures 2008, 2.4 million women living in the U.S. have been diagnosed with, and treated for, breast cancer, and these numbers have continued to rise in recent years. The American Cancer Society also reports that approximately 67 percent of total cancer-related costs are non-medical, which illustrates the importance for all women of taking time each year to assess their current insurance coverage, according to Becky Mills, vice president, Research and Development and Product Marketing. "Women with breast cancer must cope with the physical, emotional and financial burdens that come with such a diagnosis. Unfortunately, the stress of battling breast cancer is often compounded by the worry over covering costs associated with fighting the disease," notes Mills.

The Cost of Battling Breast Cancer

Mills continues, "Breast cancer can strike anyone at any time and at any age -- that's why having the right insurance in place is so important. And while it is crucial to have the right major medical insurance to cover medical expenses, it is just as important to have the right http://www.combinedinsurance.com/insurance-types/health-insurance/cancer-insurance-coverag
