Breast Cancer Life Insurance

Breast Cancer Life Insurance

Breast cancer life insurance can be attainable and even affordable. Like most cancer, has the best chance of low life insurance rates if caught in the early stage of the disease. Insitu, a fully encapsulated tumor is considered a stage 0. The tumor is removed and generally there is no further treatment involved or required. Stage 0 can receive standard life insurance rates within a few months of the surgery.

Stage 1A, a breast cancer tumor that isn’t fully encapsulated but has only had microscopic invasion of the adjacent tissue with no lymph node involvement can receive nearly identical breast cancer life insurance underwriting consideration. Standard rates are available within 6 months of surgery if there isn’t any further treatment required (chemo or radiation).

Stage 1B is generally a life insurance postpone for two years from the end of treatment and then depending on the complete stage and grade will have a flat extra charge for the first 3 years of a policy, then a standard rate for the balance of the life of the policy. Example: A $100,000 policy could be approved after 2 years at a standard rate (let’s say $500 a year) and $5.00 per thousand extra for 3 years. The extra in this case would be $500 per year. At the end of the 3 years that $500 would drop off and the policy would be $500 a year total.

Stage 2 breast cancer would generally be a 5 year postpone and the a larger flat extra for 5 years. Stage 3 and 4 would be a 15 postpone.
