Resources from the American Cancer Society

Allstate Benefits proudly partners with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to offer resources and support with a shared vision to end cancer for everyone. Links to ACS tools and information are available below, including where to go for help, support and answers.

No one should have to go through the experience of cancer diagnosis and treatment alone; cancer recovery requires a team approach and the support of loved ones. In addition to resources for people actively receiving treatment, the ACS also offers information and help to caregivers, loved ones and survivors.

ACS Vision: End cancer as we know it, for everyone.

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.
