From only £2.03 per month*, cover provides £5,000 cash lump sum to help cover the costs of illness, plus up to £100,000 for recommended drugs not covered by the NHS.
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.
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.
For many, the £5,000 cash sum helps cover some of the hidden costs associated with cancer— when unable to work, paying for childcare or covering household bills. Or, if you’ve got these covered, use it towards a holiday for you and your family. It’s completely up to you.
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.
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.
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.
