USBA Cancer Care Insurance Plan

Like many people, you probably know someone whose life has been touched by cancer. In fact, according to Cancer Facts and Figures 2013, in the US, men have slightly less than a 1 in 2 lifetime risk of developing cancer; for women, the risk is a little more than 1 in 3*. We’re all aware of our rapidly escalating medical costs. Good medical insurance is crucial - protection that not only helps defray the direct costs of a bout with cancer (medical expenses, hospital stays, etc.), but more important, also helps cover the indirect or hidden costs … things like deductibles, lost earnings, out-of-pocket expenses such as travel, food and lodging, special equipment and so on.

That’s why USBA offers the Cancer Care Insurance Plan, underwritten by Monumental Life Insurance Company.

Two different plans are available through Monumental: Standard and Preferred.

  • First occurrence of internal cancer – $500**
  • Hospital confinement:
    • Days 1 thru 90 – $175/day
    • Days 91+ – 100% (maximum monthly benefit $3,750)
    • Radiation and Chemotherapy – $750 (maximum benefit per illness period)
    • Ambulance – $37.50 per one-way trip
    • Transportation – $200 (maximum benefit per round trip)
    • Extended Care Facility – $50/day
  • First occurrence of internal cancer - $1,500
  • Hospital confinement:
    • Days 1 thru 69 - $250/day
    • Days 70+ - 100% (maximum monthly benefit $5,000)
    • Radiation and chemotherapy - $1,000 (maximum benefit per illness period)
    • Ambulance - $50 per one-way trip
    • Transportation - $300 (maximum benefit per round trip)
    • Extended Care Facility - $100/day

And these are only some of the benefits of this plan. Not only does the USBA Cancer Care Insurance Plan, underwritten by Monumental Life Insurance Company (Cedar Rapids, IA), offer you benefits … you’ll be surprised by the competitive cost. Regardless of age or smoking status, everyone pays the same rates for the same coverage. Help protect your family from the high cost of cancer treatment.

Expenses for such treatment are payable only if incurred after coverage has been in force for 12 consecutive months from the Effective Date.
