Partners

We proudly partner with these national organizations to provide information and resources.

American Cancer Society - support and resources for cancer patients and their loved ones

The Michael J. Fox Foundation - support and resources for people with Parkinson's disease and their loved ones

Support and Resources for Cancer

At Allstate Benefits, we want every person with cancer to have the support and resources they need throughout their cancer journey. We proudly partner with the American Cancer Society (ACS) to share tools and offer encouragement to people with cancer every step of the way as they navigate through treatment and beyond.

No one should have to go through cancer alone and facing a cancer diagnosis and its treatment requires a team approach. In addition to resources for people actively getting treatment, ACS offers information and help for caregivers, loved ones and survivors.

Allstate Benefits is pleased to share the ACS resources to help create a community of support and hope for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer.

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.

Support and Resources for Parkinson's Disease

Allstate Benefits proudly partners with The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (MJFF). Together, we are working to spread awareness about Parkinson's disease (PD), fund groundbreaking research, and help discover a cure.

Founded in 2000, MJFF is the world's largest nonprofit funder of PD research. The foundation's top priority is shepherding aggressively funded clinical studies and research to accelerate the next generation of treatments. Allstate Benefits is focused on amplifying the MJFF mission to help get closer to a cure.

We are also committed to sharing the many resources MJFF offers to newly diagnosed PD patients and their loved ones at MichaelJFox.org.

Get Involved in PD Research

The Michael J. Fox Foundation's landmark study, the Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative, could change the way PD is diagnosed, managed and treated. The study is now recruiting people diagnosed with PD in the past two years and family members of people with PD. Learn more: michaeljfox.org/ppmi
