Definitely, nobody likes to talk about cancer. To think that a family member or self could suffer from this disease is an unpleasant image, but that is why it is still real. And it is that cancer attacks randomly, regardless of gender, social status or where they live. It is true that there are some factors that can increase the chances of suffering from some type of cancer, but finally, it is still a disease that cannot be predicted.
That is why cancer insurance is highly necessary, because it allows families to be able to detect the disease in time and others, allow patients to receive all the necessary treatments. However, despite that, they still maintain a low level of penetration, that is, many Peruvians are not insured against this disease and the reasons for refusing are usually very common.
So, if you are one of those who have rejected cancer insurance more than once, these are three questions you should consider and answer:
If you have cancer, how will you pay for the treatments?
One of the most unfortunate points about cancer is that the treatments have very high costs.
It is not a single medicine or a single doctor, the process is usually complicated and by not having insurance, the family is plunged into a fairly strong debt that destroys budgets and savings.
Do you know the prices of the different insurers?
Although there are insurances that have very high costs, there are also others with more comfortable prices and very convenient coverage.
Age will be a determining factor when determining how much they will pay, as well as smoking or non-smoking status. If you have always thought that these insurances are out of your reach, the ideal is that you look for the different alternatives and see that many can fit your budget.
If you or a family member suffered from cancer
Would you like to access the best treatments? The clinics where you can access the treatment if you have cancer insurance constantly seek to renew their therapies, methods and medications, to ensure that patients receive the best. Even in many of the policies there is the option of obtaining a medical opinion abroad.
Even if you think they are not necessary, cancer insurance can help alleviate the burden of this disease and help the patient to carry it in a better way, seeking recovery.
