Breast cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma – cancer is NZ’s biggest killer claiming almost one third of all deaths. New cancer treatments and drug advances are fighting back but have you given yourself and family the best chance of surviving?
Do you have medical insurance that will foot the enormous bills for these new drugs? Can you afford it with your savings or will you need to sell your home? Do you remember the Keytruda debacle? People died while they waited for the government to fund it through Pharmac.
Is your medical insurance one of these?
If it is, did you know the level of cover you have? Even $10,000 does not come close to the cost of non-Pharmac funded cancer drugs. And if it’s not Pharmac funded, you will have to find the money yourself.
There is now a solution for you. You can keep your existing medical cover and ‘bolt on’ up to $500,000 per year of non-Pharmac approved drugs and non-surgical treatment. No messy changing of plans and provider, no worries about pre-existing or new conditions being covered.
This will provide cover for oncologist consultations, diagnostic tests, diagnostic imaging and laboratory tests. Should cancer be diagnosed you will have access to Pharmac and non-Pharmac treatments and the latest Medsafe approved Cancer Immunotherapy medicines.
New Zealanders ought to have access to the latest cancer medicines if you want and need them, the bolt-on Cancer Treatment Benefit gives you this choice
It is available with NZ’s and Asia-Pacific’s largest insurer as an add on to their Trauma cover, minimum $100,000 cover for adults 18 – 65 and children 0 – 17.
