Unfortunately, it’s much more common than you’d think. According to the latest statistics from Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime. For many, paying the household bills when unable to work because they are fighting cancer can be devastating.
Aviva will give you £5,000 cash on diagnosis of cancer to help ease any financial concerns.
Aviva will cover up to £100,000 to fund some of the latest and most innovative cancer treatment drugs.
Get access to a personal nurse advisor who can provide valuable support, advice and, if needed, organise a second medical opinion.
Cancer Essentials is another top-up which compliments the UK’s world class public health services and gives you and your family extra cover where it’s needed most.
We’re offering a fresh take on health care, by offering just the benefits you need at a fraction of the cost of traditional insurance. The average Lime customer pays around £4.50 a month, but costs depend on your age and whether you smoke or not, with no other fees or charges.
So we avoid the costs of traditional insurance companies, such as expensive buildings and call centres.
Most insurers charge you for a bunch of benefits you don’t need, and are rarely claimed for.
We bring our products directly to you, so we don’t need to pay for paper-pushing, brokers or annoying salespeople.
We hope you never need us to pay out. But if the worse happens, we’ll make sure you’ll quickly get the money you are entitled to. Cancer Essentials is backed by Aviva Health UK Ltd, part of the UK’s largest insurance company, who has been providing protection for over 320 years.
I had my first routine mammogram on 01/08/2018 and unfortunately after further investigation, I was found to have early stage breast cancer which was a complete shock and the last thing that I saw coming. I wanted to concentrate on being positive and get the treatment I needed, to get well.
In my head I thought, well I’m only going to be in hospital for a day hopefully and radiotherapy would be outpatient so there wasn’t anything it would be able to help me with. However, I was pleased to see there was the cash benefit amount available on diagnosis of cancer. I felt a sense of relief as well as having that bit of financial support available to me made me think I didn’t have to worry about that part of my life and concentrate on my health and getting the treatment over and done with.
I downloaded the claim form and took it into my GP surgery and collected about a week or so after.
Within a week the money was in my account as well as the claim form reimbursement at the same time.
I had received an email to acknowledge that the money would be put into my account. It was very straight forward and easy without any difficult conversations.
Having that lump cash sum available from the cancer essentials gave that support that I hadn’t even thought about as I was dealing with the diagnosis itself and I could just concentrate on that. It was there to use as I pleased for what was needed for me.
I am happy to say I have made a full recovery.
We believe in simple, honest insurance that does what it says. All cancers are covered except non-melanoma skin cancers or prostate cancer that doesn’t require active treatment. You also can’t be covered if you have been diagnosed with, or have had cancer within the last 10 years.
We’d rather not be selling Cancer Essentials, because we’d rather see cancer cured. In addition to donating 10% of every premium to Britain’s cancer charities, we aim to be a force for social good.
Watch CEO and Founder Shaun Williams explain his mission to make Lime a force for social good - by making valuable insurance affordable and accessible to people underserved by traditional insurance companies.
If you are diagnosed with cancer, you will receive £5,000 cash benefit and access to a drugs fund of up to £100,000 for recommended drugs that the NHS won’t fund. There’s also access to a helpline for support and guidance when you need it.
Unfortunately, you can’t be covered if you have had cancer within the last 10 years, and it won’t cover non-melanoma skin cancers or prostate cancer that doesn’t require active treatment.
It is open to people in the UK aged 18-70. It is available online, immediately and with just a handful of questions.
