Counter the costs of breast cancer

Thirty-six years after the first Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the prevalence of the disease is no secret – but we may not realize all the costs. Even with health insurance, some cancer patients may face out-of-pocket costs of nearly $12,000 for just one drug.1 But patients don’t have to face this alone. Aflac coverage can help clients protect employees from the financial impacts of this devastating disease.
