US Market: Chubb Launches New Cancer Advocate Plus Product

Some news from the US market; 

Chubb Workplace Benefits (CWB), a Chubb business that partners with benefits brokers and consultants to offer voluntary benefits to the employees of middle-market and large companies in the U.S., has announced the launch of Cancer Advocate Plus, a first-of-its-kind cancer-specific, genetics-based insurance program. Cancer Advocate Plus provides tools and resources for an individual to proactively understand their risk of cancer, more effectively manage a cancer diagnosis, and offers insurance protection to help with the potential financial impact of a cancer diagnosis.

Cancer continues to impact Americans at substantial rates. One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. Early detection has proven critical as the five-year survival rate for early-stage cancers is 91.1% compared to 30.6% for late-stage cancers. The ability for average Americans to obtain cancer-related genetic testing has been challenging largely due to reimbursement, awareness, and cost issues. Chubb’s Cancer Advocate Plus makes it accessible for today’s workers.

“This program is unique. It meets Americans at the intersection of science, wellness and insurance coverage to help save lives,” said Janet Buzil, Senior Vice President of Product Innovation at Chubb. “Cancer Advocate Plus offers a proactive and personalized approach to cancer risk recognition and care navigation one employee at a time. It is truly a game changer in the category of voluntary benefits.”

Through an exclusive agreement with leading genomics-based, health navigation company,  healthŌme™, the Chubb Cancer Advocate Plus program offers policyholders tools and support across the cancer continuum.

Cancer Advocate Plus is the newest addition to the Chubb Workplace Benefits (CWB) voluntary health and life portfolio. One of the nation’s fastest-growing voluntary benefits worksite carriers over the last several years, CWB also offers supplemental accident, critical illness, disability, hospital indemnity, and life insurance products to employers.

Cancer Advocate Plus is a supplement to health insurance and is not a substitute for Major Medical or other minimal essential coverage.

Insurance underwritten by ACE Property & Casualty Insurance Company, a Chubb company.  Cancer services are provided by healthŌme, Inc. healthŌme Inc. is not an affiliate of Chubb.
