Features & Benefits

On top of the potential loss of income, cancer patients incur a staggering amount of treatment expenses during the recovery period. Treatment for later-stage cancer can range from S$100,000 to S$200,000 per year1.

CancerCare provides a lump sum payout of up to S$150,0002 upon diagnosis of cancer which the policyholder and his family can use for any type of expenses. Premiums start from S$8.90/month3 (before prevailing promotions) and may be revised based on the attained age at the start of renewal every 5 years.
