In 2014, my son was diagnosed with cancer. Little did I know that the Aflac coverage was going to be used due to my son getting cancer. I had bought the protection primarily for me. Since then it has been such a journey for not only my son, but for our entire family. Your world changes dramatically when you face an illness like this.
I contacted my Aflac insurance agent Patricia Colloca after a few months of nonstop hospital visits, doctor’s and lab work appointments and she has been and continues to be an extraordinary agent who has really gone out of her way for our family. She has helped me every step of the way in organizing everything from the first date of care till today. Thank God I listened to her that day when she visited our work site. After seeing how Aflac has paid very item and Patricia’s guidance, I am glad I previously applied for the Aflac cancer insurance policy and chose family coverage.
When I received my initial benefit check, I really thought there was an error because I was not expecting such a substantial amount. Once I sat with Colloca and reviewed my policy, I saw it was correct. Every claim I submitted has been processed in a timely fashion. My son is still healing and we pray everything for a final recovery. One thing I know is that I have much more peace of mind because I can focus on him not the medical bills.
I tell people about Aflac all the time; it’s definitely a benefit option that I’m glad I took advantage of and applied. I feel also very grateful my employer sponsored this benefit to us.
