Resources from the American Cancer Society

Allstate Benefits is a proud partner of the American Cancer Society, providing vital resources and support for cancer patients and caregivers through our dedicated Cancer Helpline. Available 24/7, 365 days a year, the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center serves as the frontline for individuals seeking answers about their diagnosis, connecting to patient programs, and accessing guidance and support.

No one should face a cancer diagnosis alone. The impact of such news extends beyond the individual to their close friends and family. As a caregiver for someone with cancer, you're faced with numerous questions and uncertainties. Recognizing the crucial role caregivers play in the cancer journey, the American Cancer Society offers invaluable resources and guidance not only to caregivers but also to loved ones and survivors.

24/7 Cancer Helpline

Highly trained and compassionate cancer information specialists from the American Cancer Society provide a wide array of support services, including:

  • Providing information about cancer diagnoses
  • Offering guidance on treatment options
  • Assisting with transportation needs
  • Helping with lodging arrangements
  • Providing assistance with health insurance inquiries
  • Offering support groups and counseling services
  • Facilitating access to affordable screening options
  • Offering resources for caregivers and families
  • Providing information about participating in clinical trials

Cancer Insurance from Allstate Benefits

Cancer Insurance from Allstate Benefits offers protection for the treatment of cancer and 29 specified diseases. Coverage pays a cash benefit to help pay out-of-pocket costs associated with cancer treatments. But unlike primary health insurance, this coverage also pays for everyday living expenses like mortgage or rent, childcare, groceries and so on.

Benefits are paid regardless of any other coverage and whether customers pursue treatment or not.

To encourage preventive health, Allstate Benefits also offers a wellness benefit that covers the cost of many cancer screenings.

Critical Illness Coverage from Allstate Benefits

Allstate Benefits was the first insurance carrier to offer PD coverage under our Critical Illness insurance, and we remain one of the only carriers to cover Advanced Parkinson's disease.

All Critical Illness customers who are diagnosed with PD receive a copy of "Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist" by Michael J. Fox, along with a personal letter from our company president. Along with the financial support from their Allstate Benefits policy, this encouragement can make a big difference as they begin their journey.

The Good Hands® team works continuously to protect and support those living with a critical illness.
