What is cancer insurance?

Cancer insurance is a form of critical illness insurance designed to provide financial protection to the insured if they are diagnosed with cancer, regardless of if it is hereditary or acquired. The cancer policy will provide a lumpsum payment to the policyholder upon getting a cancer diagnosed from a medical professional during the active policy period.

The lumpsum can be used for cancer treatment, such as cancer drugs, chemotherapy, hospital costs, surgery costs, and so on. This means that cancer insurance provides not only peace of mind to the insured and their families, but also financial protection if they have to face this disease and require high treatment costs.

What is the difference between cancer insurance policy, critical illness insurance and health insurance?

Health insurance is meant to provide broad protection against everything from common colds to more serious illnesses such as cancer. However since your health insurance policy has to provide a broad range of coverage, the coverage specifically for cancer is typically lower than in a dedicated cancer policy. Critical illness insurance on the other hand provides broad coverage specifically to for most common dreaded diseases including cancer. However, you need to understand the critical illness policy you selected, sometimes the level of coverage may be higher for other critical illness, such as neurological diseases or heart rather than for cancer. As such, if you are looking to get the highest coverage possible for cancer, you are of course better off selecting a dedicated cancer insurance policy.

Why cancer insurance is good to have?

Based on the National Library of Medicine *1 Cancer is the second highest cause of death in Indonesia besides communicable diseases. According on an 18 year data review of mortality in Indonesia *2, the most commonly diagnosed cancers in males are Leukemia, colorectum cancer, liver cancer, lung cancer and nasopharynx cancer while the most commonly diagnosed cancers in females are breast cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, leukemia and colorectum cancer. This would indicate that the prevalence of cancer is much more common and requires being prudent and prepared for any unexpected financial loss.

Who should get cancer insurance?

Cancer is becoming more common around the world and can affect anyone and unfortunately at any age. However, the risk of someone for having cancer can increase significantly due to some factors, including an unhealthy lifestyle including history of smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, an unhealthy diet, or exposure to carcinogenic substances, such as air pollution or radiation as well as family history of cancer.

If someone experiences the factors mentioned above, then having cancer insurance really needs to be seriously considered.
