Many members make the mistake of believing their basic health insurance plan or Medicare will pay for all their treatment costs if they get cancer.

Unfortunately, they can find out too late that there are deductibles, copays, policy maximums, and coverage exclusions when it comes to their treatment. All these can add up to a lot of expenses out of your own pocket.

According to National Institutes of Health, cancer costs in 2008 were estimated at $228.1 billion a year — $93.2 billion for direct medical costs and $134.9 billion for indirect nonmedical costs, including loss of income, loss of productivity due to illness, and premature death. So if you get cancer, your share of “indirect” costs could run you thousands of dollars.

That’s why the Good Sam Club offers a Cancer Care Insurance Plan.

This plan provides up to $300,000 maximum in supplemental coverage. And you’re guaranteed acceptance if you haven’t had cancer in the past 10 years.

Plus, this plan is only available to members and includes these valuable features:

  • Cash benefits for early screening tests, hospitalization, surgeries, chemotherapy, and much more.
  • Benefits paid directly to you, regardless of any other health insurance you may have.
  • No deductibles or copays
  • Affordable members-only group rates
