Cancer, as we all know, has four stages, each stage worse than the last. This does not mean that it waits at stage one for diagnosis before proceeding. Cancer may be diagnosed at any stage. It may even be late-stage four – a critical period. In such a critical time, you need specific coverage for that stage. And some cancer plans offer this.
Rather than just giving you a lump sum at the time of initial diagnosis, say at stage 2, some insurers cover your treatment stage-wise. So if you proceed to stage 3, you are still covered by your cancer health plan.
