New Insurance Plans: Good News For People Diagnosed With Cancer

Main Category: Health Insurance/Medical Insurance News

Article Date: 07 Feb 2006 - 18:00pm (UK)

Leading cancer care charity Macmillan Cancer Relief welcomes plans announced today by the Association of British Insurers' to make insurance polices clearer.

Ayesha Owusu-Barnaby, Head of Campaigns & Public Affairs, Macmillan Cancer Relief, said: "We welcome these moves by the ABI to make it easier for consumers to understand what insurance policies are offering and the information they need to supply to get cover. At Macmillan, we know of cancer patients who haven't been covered by policies that they thought would pay out on a cancer diagnosis. This is particularly distressing because, as our Better Deal campaign highlighted, many cancer patients cite financial difficulties as second only to pain as a cause of stress for them."
