Cancer patients losing an average of €18,000 a year  

I was very interested in the recent article about the average cost that cancer patients have to incur in order to pay for the cost of their cancer treatment.

On average cancer patients are losing €18,000 per annum in income or €1500 per month as a result of their cancer diagnosis according to a “Real Cost of Cancer Report” by the Irish Cancer Society.

Additional costs include petrol/diesel, parking costs, medicines and additional medical expenses extra GP and Consultant visits.

A simple Serious Illness policy would help offset the cost of these additional bills. It would provide a tax free lump sum at a time when it most needed so that patients could focus on their treatment without having to worry about the financial costs.

Cost of €50,000 of Serious Illness cover for a term of 20 years, this would cover the cost of treatment for 3 years

  • Male/Female age 30 next birthday cost is €15.15 per month
  • Male/Female age 40 next birthday cost is €28.62 per month
  • Male/Female age 50 next birthday cost is €66.63 per month

All prices quoted above are based on non smokers
