Before I got cancer, I made sure I had an AFLAC cancer policy. They’ve been great, and I recommend that everyone who is planning on having cancer enrolls in one of their plans before getting it. The trouble is, you don’t know if/when you might get cancer, so you better just plan for it. Expect the worst and hope for the best, some say.
I filed my claim for 2008 a week or so ago and was really surprised when I received a check in the mail for $4600. Something wasn’t right. It should have been $900. I’ve been filing these claims for years, so I knew a mistake had been made. I picked up the phone and called AFLAC. They’re going to investigate it and will send a letter when they figure out what happened. Wouldn’t it be nice if they said it was a reward for making it 6 years with myeloma?
