Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke

What is it?

If you were diagnosed with cancer or suffered a heart attack or stroke, the last thing you would want to worry about is your finances. GTL’s Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke Insurance helps you receive the financial peace of mind that allows you to focus on what matters most – your recovery.

How does it work?

A lump-sum benefit amount is paid directly to you regardless of any other health care coverage you may have upon the diagnosis of cancer or if you suffer a heart attack or stroke. Benefit amounts are flexible and can range up to $75,000 for cancer and $75,000 for heart attack and stroke, depending on your specific needs.

Why do I need it?

53% of the costs associated with cancer are non-medical, indirect costs.

It will also allow you to seek treatment that is out of network or not covered without worrying about costs. And, it will give you 24/7 access to Ask Mayo Clinic support services!
