AIG Cancer Care Plan - Here When You Need Us

Dealing with a cancer diagnosis is one of the most difficult things that can happen in anyone’s life. If you or a family member receive a cancer diagnosis, your present insurance may not be enough to cover all your expenses. Our Cancer Care Plan is designed to give you cash in hand to help you and your family during this very difficult time.

This year in Ireland, it's estimated that someone will be diagnosed with cancer every 3 minutes.[1]

Most people survive cancer. However, cancer patients and their loved ones are facing a financial crisis while going through treatment[2].

The average cost to someone dealing with cancer is €756 a month. This can rise in some cases to over €1,000.[3]

What is the AIG Cancer Care Plan?

‘We have fused together financial and wellbeing support in the event that you are diagnosed with cancer.’

Our affordable cover starts at €3.50 a month[4] and our benefits are designed to help you with the financial consequences and implications of a cancer diagnosis. In addition we provide a range of health and wellbeing services.
