Why Lump Sum CHS ( Cancer-Heart Attack-Stroke) Insurance?
One of these policies will pay you a lump sum of $5,000 to over $50,000 when first diagnostic of a covered Cancer. This money goes directly to you, we believe that if we can relieve some of the stress of having to worry about money and let you focus on getting the right treatment, Applying is easy most policy have only a few questions to qualify. When considering the amount of coverage there are a few things to take into account:
- Cost of treatment, let’s keep it simple every health plan has a Maximum out of pocket (MOOP) Typically around $7,000 a year (assume that treatment would go into at least 2 calendar years)
- Monthly living cost mortgage, car payments, utilities, Cost of Insurances (Auto, home, health, life) (assume that treatment would and recovery would last at least 24 months)
- Travel cost of treatment
- Experimental Drugs not approved by FDA (if necessary)
- Out of Network Specialist may be needed (MOOP) is higher for out of network doctors
- Medication after treatment (could last years) this cost would go towards your medical Insurance (MOOP) if medication is in formulary.
1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get Cancer

“Every 43 seconds, someone in the United States has a heart attack.”Mozaffarian D, Benjamin
A heart attack, also called a myocardial infarction, occurs when a part of the heart muscle doesn’t receive enough blood flow. The more time that passes without treatment to restore blood flow, the greater the damage to the heart muscle. Learn more about the signs and symptoms of a heart attack.
Every year, about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack. Of these cases
- 525,000 are a first heart attack.
- 210,000 happen to people who have already had a first heart attack.
One of 5 heart attacks is silent—the damage is done, but the person is not aware of it. Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the main cause of heart attack. A less common cause is a severe spasm, or sudden contraction, of a coronary artery that can stop blood flow to the heart muscle.
1. Every 20 seconds a heart attack occurs and a heart attack fatality occurs about every minute.
2. Almost 14 million Americans have a history of heart attack or angina
How many people are affected by heart disease?
Americans suffer 1.5 million heart attacks and strokes each year. Cardiovascular disease—including heart disease and stroke—is the leading cause of death in the United States. Every day, 2,200 people die from cardiovascular diseases—that’s nearly 800,000 Americans each year, or 1 in every 3 deaths
Can you die from heart disease?
Approximately 50% of men and 64% of women who died suddenly of coronary heart disease had no previous symptoms of this disease. Even if you have been told you have normal cholesterol don’t be misled; you may be at risk. Early detection can be critical for preventing a potentially lethal cardiac event.
How common is heart disease?
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. More than half of the deaths due to heart disease in 2009 were in men. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease, killing over 370,000 people annually. Every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack.
Understand the signs of a stroke
Please know and understand the signs of a stroke, if caught in time and treated quickly there is a greater chance of recovery. Insurance will cover most of the cost of treatment and recovery in most cases you would have to meet your deductible and treatment could take awhile so thats why I recommend an additional Insurance policy to cover Specialty Diseases Like Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke.
Note: in most cases if treatment and/or Recovery goes into the next calendar year the deductible and maximum out of pocket reset, so you could end up paying for those again.
