AIG Employee Benefit Solutions(R) has partnered with the Lance Armstrong Foundation to launch the LIVESTRONG(TM) SurvivorPlan, a supplemental insurance policy to connect participants to cancer prevention resources and, in the event of a diagnosis, treatment.


Participants will receive $100 per year for early detection screenings. The policy also covers typical costs incurred when treating cancer, such as radiation and chemotherapy treatments, nursing services and hospice care, bone marrow transplants, second surgical opinions and National Cancer Institute consultations, among others.
