Here's how it works.

You never know what the future could hold, which is why it’s so important to help protect yourself with Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance. These plans don’t just help with medical expenses. Rather, they pay you cash directly, unless assigned—instead of a doctor or hospital—to help you manage expenses like bills, rent, car payments, groceries, child care and more. Cancer is expensive, but with Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance, patients can focus on the most important thing: getting better.

You come down with a fever.

After frequent infections and a high fever, you decide to head to your physician to see what’s the matter.

Time for some tests.

The physician recommends a bone marrow biopsy to check for cancer.

You receive your diagnosis.

The biopsy results are in, and unfortunately they show you have leukemia.

You begin treatment.

Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance helps with medical expenses like chemotherapy and with non-medical expenses like travel and lodging to help keep life as normal as possible for you and your family.
