Absa Instant Life Cancer Cover

What is Cancer Cover

Cancer Cover provides cash in the event of a diagnosis of cancer requiring major intervention and treatment.

Who should buy Cancer Cover?

If you are concerned with the possible financial implication of cancer then you should buy this product.  The Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) is quoted as saying that one in six South African men and one in seven women will get cancer during their lives. Even if you have medical aid, Cancer Cover is important.

Note: If you buy our Critical Illness Cover, cancer will already be covered as one of the listed critical illnesses.
