Serious illness insurance

Cancer is a very serious illness that, in most cases, prevents the affected person and often his/her family members (as a result of necessary care and psychological shock) from working at the usual tempo, which results in a significant loss of funds in the family budget. Treatment is very time consuming and expensive. As a result of this loss of income, many patients are unable to meet their financial obligations (loans, rent, school fees, …). This leads not only to deterioration in their state of health, but also in a worsening of the social position of the patient and his/her loved ones. Some types of treatment are not covered by public medical insurance, but can be paid individually, which is, however, extremely costly.

Thanks to Phoenix insurance, the negative impacts on the economic situation of the insured person and his or her family caused by a serious illness are significantly or entirely eliminated.
