Cancer insurance

It is worth thinking about cancer insurance early. If the diagnosis is already on paper, unfortunately, insurance can no longer help. Cancer insurance allows you to start treatment immediately and focus on what matters most – your health.

Nowadays, a cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence, but a disease that can be effectively treated. The Health Insurance Fund usually pays most of the necessary medical expenses. There are, however, exceptions where additional treatment or medicine is needed that is not covered by the Health Insurance Fund. In this case, you will need to find the funds yourself, and insurance is one of the best ways to do this. In addition to medical expenses, when buying insurance, it is also worth thinking about everyday expenses – such as housing costs, loan repayments, food or other living expenses.

You can choose cancer insurance with life insurance.
