Selling Cancer Insurance

April 8, 2021

Selling Cancer Insurance should be a part of every agent’s offerings to their client. Cancer is the 2nd leading cause of death in the US right behind heart disease. According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 40% of men and 39% of women will develop cancer over their lifetime. While Medicare or other health insurance plans have coverage for the expenses related to diagnosing and treating cancer, most still leave many coverage gaps that can have a substantial impact on a client’s finances.

Types of Cancer Insurance

There are two primary types of cancer insurance, traditional and a “Lump Sum” cash benefit. These plans can be structured in different ways. An expense-incurred plan will pay out a percentage of treatment costs up to a certain dollar amount. An Indemnity policy pays a fixed amount for each benefit outlined in your policy. GTL’s Precision Care policy is a perfect example of a “Lump Sum’ policy. They offer a good base policy along with offering additional riders for maximum coverage and genome sequencing included. If you are not currently contracted with GTL reach out to your marketer at Pinnacle and they can get you ready to sell right away.
