A diagnosis is a call to:

  • Increase the amount of your life insurance death benefit if you can. If you cannot do it now, you may be able to during a period known as an "open enrollment" period. Open enrollment is when there are no medical questions asked.

  • Buy the coverage if you become eligible for disability insurance and/or long term care insurance.

  • If you have a tax advantaged savings account such as a Health Savings Account or other tax advantage health account, take full advantage of it. (See "To Learn More.")

  • During open enrollment periods, don't just renew current health coverage. Look at all your health insurance options from the point of view of a person with colorectal cancer. Click here to learn how.
