Group Disability Product & Cancer Protection Assurance Plan: Aflac launches two new offerings
5/30/2018
 
Aflac is creating a fresh perspective in the marketplace by combining its voluntary benefits experience with true group fundamentals through the launch of its latest group disability product.

"With the introduction of the new group short- and long-term disability products, the depth and breadth of Aflac's offerings on behalf of our policyholders continue to climb," said Stephanie Shields, vice president of premier broker solutions at Aflac. "By adding to our already extensive voluntary plans and value-added services, we are creating value not only for our customers, but also for our broker partners, while meeting the needs of certificate holders and providing an affordable solution for large employers, as well."

Aflac's expansion of its group disability product offerings is highly customizable, allowing insureds to create or match any existing plan to meet their needs. This latest group disability offering aligns with the company's ongoing commitment to support employees in their time of need and during their recovery journeys.

Aflac also recently reaffirmed its long-standing commitment to help those facing cancer through the launch of its Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance plan. The new plan design reflects the evolution of patient needs and challenges, and covers modern approaches to prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care.

"We recognize that as cancer treatment evolves, so do the needs of policyholders, and so should our products," said Wendy Herndon, second vice president of product development and implementation at Aflac.

Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance provides more options to help meet the needs of policyholders through all life stages. Coverage is now offered for screening tests and surgeries performed on the basis of genetic testing results, and the wellness payout for early diagnosis is also increased. Other additional benefits include nonsurgical treatment such as immunotherapy, an annual care benefit to help manage costs with delayed effects, and surgery on a non-diseased body part.

Also, every Aflac policyholder can explore My Cancer Circle, an online tool that helps caregivers coordinate volunteers and friends to assist with tasks such as meal preparation or transportation.

Aflac Cancer Protection Assurance is available through the worksite, as well as on an agent-assisted individual-paid basis, and offered with high, medium and low options – all with Health Savings Account (HSA) compatibility.
