A recent article in the Courier Mail highlights the gap between the real cost of prostate cancer treatment and what is funded through private health insurance.  Families are being caught out having to pay additional money for treatment when the individual undergoing treatment is already unable to work and therefore not earning an income.

From a less than $1 per day, you could obtain $100,000 Trauma Cover which would provide much needed protection against events such as cancer, heart attack and stroke. Statistics highlight on www.prostate.org.au indicate 1 in 9 men will develop prostate cancer over their lifetime.

By holding $100,000 of Trauma Cover you can provide yourself with the options of scaling back work, obtaining treatments that have not been approved on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) including treatments only available overseas and ensuring you have the right insurance cover for your family.
