Counter the costs of breast cancer

The prevalence of breast cancer is no secret – but we may not realize all the costs. Some cancer patients may face out-of-pocket costs between $10,000 to $15,000 per year for just one drug.1 But patients don’t have to face these challenges alone. Aflac coverage can help clients protect employees from the financial impacts of this devastating disease while encouraging them to have annual screenings for early detection.
