Breast Cancer and Insurance

By Farin Cloyd

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and our team at Simple Choice Insurance Brokerage wants to honor the strength and perseverance of those fighting breast cancer. Research shows that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and approximately 1 in 833 men will develop cancer.

It is recommended that women perform regular self-examinations, get annual mammograms after age 40, and reduce any outside risk. Outside of regular check-ups and preventative measures, it is important that you are covered for whatever comes your way.

In 2017, it was reported that a single round of chemotherapy could cost over $100,000. That adds tremendous financial and emotional strain on top of the physical strain of the disease.

Open enrollment is starting now, and one of the best ways to prepare yourself for whatever comes your way is to make sure you are insured. Simple Choice is dedicated to making your choice simple and giving you the coverage you need to prepare for whatever life may bring.
