What does the cancer and specified diseases plan cover?
The cancer and specified diseases plan provides coverage for annual screenings, medications, treatments, surgeries, and hospital stays related to diagnoses and treatment of cancer and covered diseases. The plan can also help with non-medical expenses by providing cash you can use at your discretion to cover other financial needs related to dealing with your illness. You can also purchase an additional rider for an ICU benefit.
If you enroll, the plan pays benefits in addition to any other coverage. It doesn’t decrease benefit payments by coordinating with other plans to pay up to a certain maximum amount. You don't pay a deductible, and there’s no lifetime maximum benefit amount.
If you choose the ICU coverage, you receive a benefit if you or an eligible dependent is confined in a hospital intensive care unit. This benefit pays for up to 30 days per period of confinement.
