A Proactive Approach to Your Well-Being
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and an annual reminder to schedule important wellness screenings. Find out how your Platinum-marketed policy can help you take a proactive approach to your health.
The American Cancer Society estimated that 255,180 new cases of breast cancer would occur in women and men in 2017.1 The good news? Treatments are advancing—the National Cancer Institute found that breast cancer death rates fell an average of 1.8 percent per year from 2005 to 2014.2 As treatments advance, however, those touched by cancer must find ways to overcome increasing medical costs, including out-of-pocket expenses. But, there are steps you can take today to ensure your medical and financial well-being.
At Platinum Supplemental Insurance, we develop and market products that pay lump-sum benefits in the event of a covered accident or illness, such as breast cancer. These benefits can be used to address out-of-pocket expenses, such as deductibles, copays, travel costs or other inevitable life expenses that come up during treatment. In addition to benefits that are designed to protect your financial well-being, many of the products Platinum markets include benefits for wellness, such as annual health screenings and physician office visits, which encourage a proactive approach to your medical well-being.
As we recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month, consider putting your policy to work and schedule your annual screening.
