THIS IS A CANCER - ONLY POLICY

Why Cancer Insurance?Benefit OptionsOptional Riders

According to the American Cancer Society:

  • In the United States, men have about a 1-in-2 lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women the risk is a little more than 1-in-3.*
  • Since 1990, over 18 million new cancer cases have been diagnosed.*

As advances in cancer treatment continue, more and more people will survive:

  • Approximately 9.6 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive in 2000.*
  • The five-year relative survival rate for all cancers combined is 63%.*
  • The National Institutes of Health estimated the overall costs for cancer in the year 2003 at $189.5 billion.

Although health insurance can help offset the costs of cancer treatment, you still may have to cover deductibles and copayments on your own.

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

  • Travel
  • Food
  • Lodging
  • Long-distance calls
  • Childcare
  • Household help

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. Central United Life Insurance Company helps provide an important safety net in fighting the financial consequences of cancer that result beyond traditional health insurance.

Central United Life pays benefits directly to you, unless assigned.

You use the cash however you decide.

ELIGIBILITY - You and your covered spouse must be ages 18 through 69 to apply for coverage. Unmarried, dependent children under the age of 21 (in NM and TX, age 25 regardless of student status) may be covered. Unmarried children under the age of 25 may also be covered if enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited college or university, or marriage, whichever occurs first. When the child reaches the limiting age, the child may “convert” to an individual policy without evidence of insurability, subject to the “Conversion” provision in the base policy.

LIMITATIONS 30-Day Waiting Period. If a Covered Person has a Positive Diagnosis for Cancer or a Dread Disease during the first thirty days after the Effective Date of this Policy, coverage for such Cancer or Dread Disease will only apply to loss commencing after two years (in NH, six months; in NC, twelve months) from the Effective Date of this Policy; or, at Your option, You may elect to void this Policy from the beginning and receive a full refund of premium.

WAIVER OF PREMIUM -If the Named Insured becomes Totally Disabled for 60 days as a result of a Positive Diagnosis of Cancer or a Dread Disease while this Policy is in force, We will waive the premiums that fall due while he or she is Totally Disabled. The Total Disability must begin before the policy anniversary following that person’s attainment of age 60. To be eligible for this benefit, premiums must continue to be paid for 60 days after the commencement of Total Disability. Upon approval of this benefit, waiver of premiums will begin on the premium due date next following 60 days of continuous Total Disability. This provision does not apply to Total Disability of the Insured Spouse or Insured Child(ren).

GUARANTEED RENEWABLE FOR LIFE - Your policy cannot be cancelled regardless of changes in health, the number of times benefits are received or advancing age. The only way the policy can be cancelled is for failure to pay premiums. The Company reserves the right to change the rates on all policies of this class in the entire state.
