Focus on winning the battle

If you are diagnosed with cancer, a cancer insurance plan can help reduce daily stress about money, so you can focus on getting better.

How does it work?

Sun Life’s Cancer insurance provides fixed benefits for early detection and treatment of cancer and some related expenses. Benefits are paid directly to you regardless of any other coverage you may have and you can spend it any way you choose. You can use this money to help pay for:

  • out-of-pocket medical expenses
  • alternative therapies
  • everyday expenses, like groceries, transportation, or child care

What’s covered

Depending on your plan, you may receive a benefit for the following:

  • screenings
  • hospital confinement
  • radiation
  • chemotherapy
  • surgery

Check your plan details for more information on covered conditions, benefit waiting periods, plan maximums, exclusions, and limitations.

Additional benefits that may be available with your plan:

Cancer screening benefit

Pays an amount for each covered employee or dependent who is tested for internal cancer and charged for undergoing tests like a colonoscopy, chest x-ray, mammogram, biopsy, CT scans or MRI scans, and more. This benefit is limited to once per benefit year.

With cancer insurance, you can focus less on your wallet and more on recovery.
