!!! READ THIS FIRST & WATCH VIDEO BELOW !!!

Current Cancer is a life-threatening health condition, and there are no insurance companies that offer 1st-day coverage to cancer patients undergoing current treatment.

We recommend current cancer patients purchase a guaranteed issue life insurance that asks no health questions but does come with a 2-year waiting.

In this article, you will find out precisely how life insurance providers underwrite breast cancer patients, how to find the best burial insurance after breast cancer, and how to find your lowest cost option.

FOR EASIER NAVIGATION:


WHAT IS MY BEST INSURANCE OPTION IF I HAVE A HISTORY OF BREAST CANCER?


YOUR BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT IS MORE THAN 24 MONTHS

Most burial insurance companies ask about breast cancer within the last 24 months. Because your breast cancer treatment has been longer than 24 months, you can honestly answer “no” to the breast cancer question.

You are now eligible for level death benefit with first-day full coverage to those companies that only have a two-year look-back period on breast cancer.

You now have the chance to choose the best burial insurance after breast cancer and the lowest premium.

You will receive first-day full coverage, and you won’t have a two-year waiting period. Your beneficiary will receive a 100% death benefit if you pass away for any reason.

Best Option: Level death benefit plan with first-day coverage


YOU’RE CANCER FREE FROM FOR 24 MONTHS OR LONGER

If you have finished breast cancer treatment and now you’re now cancer-free, you have the best insurance options. Since it’s been more than 24 months since your last treatment, you can now honestly answer “NO” to the breast cancer question on the application.

If this is you, we can help you get approved for a level death benefit plan. You will be 100% covered on the first day, and you will not have a waiting period on your policy. And you will also pay the lowest premium.

Best Option: Level death benefit plan with first-day coverage


YOU’RE DIAGNOSED OR UNDERGOING BREAST CANCER TREATMENT IN THE LAST 24 MONTHS

Every burial insurance company asks about breast cancer within a minimum period of two years. If you’ve been currently diagnosed with breast cancer, been in treatment in the last 24 months, or are in remission, you fall under the highest risk category.

Your best option is to get approved for a guaranteed issue whole life insurance. Even with cancer, you can still get an affordable premium and only have a two-year waiting period.

Best Option: Guaranteed issue whole life insurance


WHY DO YOU NEED A GUARANTEED ISSUE BURIAL INSURANCE IF YOU’RE CURRENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH BREAST CANCER OR UNDERGOING TREATMENT?

We recommend purchasing a guaranteed issue burial insurance plan with a two-year waiting period if you’re currently undergoing treatment because your health could change at any moment. 

Tomorrow is uncertain, and you could develop other health problems as a consequence of breast cancer. Additional other health conditions may prevent you from qualifying for first-day coverage.

Postponing your application until you finish your treatment is not wise.

If you wait 24 months to get better burial insurance options, any significant changes in your health may disqualify you for a first-day coverage plan, and a guaranteed issue (GI) plan will be your only option for coverage.

If you purchase a guaranteed burial insurance plan now, you start working on the waiting period immediately, and whatever happens to your health in the future, you are covered.

GI plan may be more expensive than a plan with health questions, but your approval is guaranteed. Purchasing this plan is worth it in the long run. You will not lose any money with a GI plan, and it ends up costing less than having no insurance coverage at all.

If a guaranteed issue burial insurance is your only option for insurance coverage because of your breast cancer, apply now, and start working on your waiting period.

IF I HAVE BREAST CANCER, DO I NEED A MEDICAL EXAM TO QUALIFY FOR BURIAL INSURANCE?

You are NOT required to take a medical exam to qualify for burial insurance after breast cancer.

When you apply for burial insurance, you only have to answer some basic questions about your health. The application process is simple, and you don’t need to provide medical records or blood and urine samples.

You’ll get the official approval from the insurance company often within minutes!


BURIAL INSURANCE UNDERWRITING IF YOU HAVE BREAST CANCER

The best way to get the lowest premium is by applying for life insurance before a cancer diagnosis. However, if you already have breast cancer, your next best option is by applying for burial insurance coverage with medical underwriting (burial insurance with underwriting means they ask health questions)

Burial insurance companies have two ways of underwriting:

FIRST – They may ask you a series of health questions. Your answers to their questions will determine your eligibility.

SECOND – They will electronically review your prescription history to verify your health.


HEALTH QUESTIONS:


Every burial insurance company will ask about cancer or treatments in the application process.

Common breast cancer treatments:

  1. Lumpectomy (wide excision)
  2. Mastectomy
  3. Chemotherapy
  4. Hormone therapy
  5. Immunotherapy
  6. Radiation therapy

You will most likely see breast cancer or any type of cancer asked in the health questionnaire this way:

  • In the last 24 months, have you been diagnosed with any type of cancer, or been advised to receive treatment for cancer?
  • In the last 24 months, have you been treated for any cancer?
  • In the last three years, have you been diagnosed with cancer, or received radiation or chemotherapy for cancer?
  • In the last three years, have you been treated for any internal cancer? 

Every burial insurance company is different, but that’s the most common way cancer will be asked in the health questionnaire.

Note: If you say “yes” to any cancer question in the knockout section of the application, the insurance company WILL NOT offer you a level death benefit with first-day coverage.


There is a 24-month minimum lookback period on cancer

Almost every burial insurance company that has a health question has a minimum of 24 months look back period on cancer.


PRESCRIPTION HISTORY CHECK

The insurance companies will also perform electronic prescription history checks to verify your current health condition and your answers to the health questions.

Here are the common cancer medications; life insurance companies look for:

  • Arimidex
  • Aromasin
  • Cyclophosphamide
  • Exemestane
  • Femara
  • Fulvestrant
  • Herceptin
  • Letrozole
  • Tamoxifen
  • Taxol
  • Taxotere
  • Trexall
  • Xeloda
  • Zoladex

There are hundreds of different prescription medications for breast cancer, but the above are the most common.

If you have been taking any of these meds within the previous 24 months, most burial insurance companies will assume that you are receiving breast cancer treatment.


HOW MUCH INSURANCE DO I NEED IF I HAVE BREAST CANCER?

The amount of burial insurance you should buy varies depending on your personal and financial circumstances. However, burial insurance should cover the cost of your funeral, burial, and final expenses.

The first step to figuring out how much burial insurance you need is to know your end-of-life expenses. Your funeral cost is often the biggest single expense you need to pay. Other end-of-life expenses to consider are your outstanding medical bills, living expenses, credit card bills, and other debts.

Here’s an example of a funeral cost breakdown from the National Funeral Directors Association.

AVERAGE FUNERAL COST WITH VIEWING AND BURIAL
Non-declinable basic services$2,300
Removal/ transfer of remains to funeral home$350
Embalming & preparation of the body$1,050
Use of facilities for viewing & funeral ceremony$965

HOW SHOULD I PAY MY PREMIUMS?

The best way to pay your premium is through a savings or checking account. We recommend you set a bank draft from your savings or checking account. That way, the bank will automatically pay your premium each month, and you don’t need to worry about your policy lapsing due to non-payment.


BREAST CANCER AND BURIAL INSURANCE RIDERS

Insurance policy riders add benefits to your policy. Adding insurance riders will enhance your policy to fit your needs. Some riders are built into your policy, while other riders can be added at an additional cost. Most riders are affordable, and it involves little to no underwriting.

Here’s a list of common burial insurance riders:
