Cancer Insurance
Coverage for specialized healthcare.

 

Putting employees and their families in control of out-of-pocket expenses.

Cancer insurance from ManhattanLife, sometimes referred to as supplemental cancer insurance, is an important benefit you can offer your employees to enhance your benefit package while helping employees protect themselves from the copays, deductibles, and other expenses that come with fighting a cancer diagnosis.

ManhattanLife offers two different cancer policies – ManhattanLife Critical Illness and Cancer, a lump sum policy that is part of our Prestige series, and Cancer Care Plus through our Premier series. Both deliver peace of mind by helping employees and their families cover a variety of expenses .
