Are You Covered Up?

3 May 2011

Did you know that skin cancers account for 80% of all newly diagnosed cancers, with two in three Australians typically diagnosed with skin cancer by the time they are 70*.  Of all the cancers suffered by Australians, melanoma is the most common cancer in people aged 15-44 years*.

  

Queensland, also known as the ‘sunshine’ state has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world* with Asteron claim numbers on the rise for early stage melanoma (Age 30-37)**.  

 

With these stats in mind, you now have to think about what trauma policies have the most comprehensive cover.  Most companies have this covered under the cancer definition, however, most will exclude certain events and depths of incisions.  Asteron were first to market with which we consider all 3 measurement methodologies (level of thickness, Clark levels and ulcerations).
