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

According to National Institutes of Health1, 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 and 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 and paid regardless of any other health insurance you may have.
  • No deductibles or copays
  • Affordable members-only group rates

For more information and to enroll right away, visit the new Good Sam Club’s Life and Health Services web site today.

    Since Good Sam seems to have been taken over by Camping World, the Highway magizine has reallt deteriorated as a travel information tool. I just went through two years of back issues cutting out travel information and tere was alot. When I got to the June 2011 time frame the information was basically non-existant. It looks like a travel group has turned into a group pushing a commercial venture. Just because theh Life Member now gets access is not a benifit. It also looks like Good Sam is now for snow birds and not the real traveling RV’er.
