Help protect your finances during life-changing events

Cancer, according to American Cancer Society, is the second leading cause of death in the U.S. and is second only to heart disease (2023). Cancer Insurance, underwritten by Mutual of Omaha and offered through Pierce Insurance, includes an optional Heart Attack/Stroke rider to help you and your family better cope financially – and emotionally – if a positive diagnosis were to occur. Added comfort and protection means the freedom to focus on more important things.

Cancer treatment can cause out-of-pocket expenses that aren’t covered by traditional health insurance:

  • Food
  • Travel

  • Lodging
  • Childcare

  • Household Help
  • Long-distance Calls

Meanwhile, living expenses such as car payments, mortgages or rent, and utility bills continue, whether or not you are able to work. If a family member has to stop working to take care of you, the loss of income may be doubled. Cancer Insurance helps provide an important safety net in fighting the financial consequences of cancer that result beyond traditional health insurance. The Cancer coverage includes:

  • Lump sum benefit amounts ($10,000 to $100,000)
  • Coverage plans for Individual, Single Parent, and Family
  • Issue ages 18-89 or 18-54 term
  • No reduction of benefits at any age>
  • Heart Attack/Stroke Optional Rider
  • Intensive Care Optional Rider
  • Cash Value Optional Rider
