It's a way to strengthen your benefit package – offering your employees valuable coverage at affordable group rates.

More than 1.6 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer this year.1 And while today's advanced medical care is improving cancer survival rates, the cost of treatment goes well beyond what medical insurance covers.

We understand that every company is different and don't believe in a one-size-fits-all solution. Guardian offers a choice of three plans and important options that allow you to tailor your cancer insurance costs to better meet your employees' needs. You can work with your broker to discover the plan and options and cancer insurance rates that work best for your company.
