You’ve got it covered

SPONSORED CONTENT: Have you ever worried about the impact a cancer diagnosis would have on you and your family? Cinga Cancer Cover can change that.

Cancer is a top health concern for Kiwis(1). Most of us have wondered what we would do if we were personally affected by a cancer diagnosis and thousands of Kiwis already know exactly how it feels to be faced with cancer.

Physically, emotionally and financially, a cancer diagnosis brings big changes. Did you know you can lessen the impact cancer could have on your life?

Making sure you have good cancer cover insurance can make a real difference to how you and your family will cope.

You’ll have choices

The biggest benefit of Cigna Cancer Cover(2) is that it gives you choices. It’s an insurance that will provide you with a tax-free lump sum payment on diagnosis and it’s completely up to you how the money is spent.

This means you can use it towards rehabilitation, explore treatment options that might otherwise have been too costly, pay off bills or have the ability to financially support a partner or caregiver taking time off work.

And it’s not just about practical concerns. The lump sum payment can be used to help tick off that bucket list. Use it to take a family holiday or do something you’ve always dreamed about.

What can you cover?

With Cigna Cancer Cover**, you can choose a cover level up to $80,000. If you are diagnosed with a less severe cancer (a cancer that hasn’t affected surrounding healthy cells) and your claim is accepted, you will still receive a part payment of 10 percent of your cover.

The remaining balance will stay in place should you suffer from severe cancer or another less severe cancer.

You can also make life easier by taking out cover for you and your partner.

Live your life

A recent Cigna survey found that 60 percent of Kiwis are concerned about cancer, with 41 percent feeling they need to use their savings to pay for medical expenses – but it doesn’t have to be that way! Cigna Cancer Cover is simple and affordable, and once you’ve got your cover sorted, you can stop worrying and get back to enjoying life.
