The Voluntary Cancer Insurance benefit is designed to complement Davidson's health plans by helping employees with the indirect costs associated with a cancer diagnosis. The benefit is paid directly to the employee and not in coordination with your health insurance. If an employee elects this voluntary insurance, when any insured family member is diagnosed with any type of internal cancer, and submits acceptable proof of diagnosis, payment is made directly to the employee.
