Our Cancer Cover insurance plan, previously known as CancerCare, helps take the financial and emotional pressure off you and your family following a covered cancer diagnosis. With a Cancer Cover plan, we can help you to concentrate on what matters most.
We have four levels of cancer diagnosis cover. Just choose the one that suits you best:
£25,000 with Standard Cover
£50,000 with Premier Cover
£75,000 with Platinum Cover
£100,000 with Platinum Plus Cover
For early stage cancers which haven’t spread and non malignant skin cancers, we will pay £1,000.
It’s important to know that Cancer Cover insurance is not an income protection plan. Cancer Cover insurance policies provide a one-off payment that you can spend as you wish.
Cancer Cover Benefits
We haven’t changed any of the benefits from CancerCare; and it is easy to take out a cancer insurance policy - there's no medical, and we don’t take your family history into consideration. Full claims can be made just 91 days after taking out Cancer Cover insurance.

It’s important to know…
It’s important to know that Cancer Cover, previously CancerCare is not an income protection plan. Cancer Cover provides a one-off payment that you can spend as you wish. No benefit is payable on cancers diagnosed within the first 90 days.
Cancer Cover won’t provide cover for a cancer if you have been diagnosed with the same cancer before your policy’s start date and it won’t cover cancers directly or indirectly caused by any pre-existing condition. Cancer Cover won’t provide cover for any tumours that are described as being pre-malignant. Please see policy documents for full details of exclusions.
With our name change from CancerCare to Cancer Cover, we have given you more flexibility in how you choose which policy is right for you. Now with three different levels of cover to choose from in the form of Cancer Cover, Cancer Cover Female and Cancer Cover Male, the choice really is yours.
If you are already a CancerCare customer, your policy will continue as normal.
