IMG Launches Two Unique International Insurance Plans
Indianapolis, IN Sep 1, 2011 – New plans added to IMG’s product portfolio
International Medical Group®, Inc. (IMG®), a worldwide leader in designing, distributing and administering global health care benefits, has launched two international group insurance plans, adding to its diverse product portfolio. The Patriot Platinum Group Travel Medical InsuranceSM and Patriot Green Group Travel Medical InsuranceSM plans, provide a wealth of benefits and are tailored to meet the specific needs of groups of five or more in their respective market.
“We are excited about the addition of these products to our portfolio,” said Jeff Nasser, Senior Vice President of International Marketing at IMG. “People travel abroad for a variety of reasons. It is our goal to offer a range of products, backed by world-class services, to meet their unique needs.”
Patriot Platinum Group provides first-class protection for groups of five or more international travelers who want to obtain the maximum coverage available in a short-term travel medical product. Among the many benefits available, the plan provides up to $8,000,000 of coverage, an extensive range of deductibles, certain coverage for sudden and unexpected recurrences of pre-existing conditions, exclusive access to IMG’s Global Concierge and Assistance ServicesSM, and premium coverage for in-patient and out-patient medical expenses. Coverage is available from five days up to three years for U.S. citizens traveling outside the U.S. and for non-U.S. citizens traveling outside their home country.
Patriot Green Group is designed for groups of five or more environmentally conscious international travelers that are serious about sustainable and responsible tourism. The plan includes an Eco Sports Rider covering such activities as jungle zip lining, wildlife safaris, and cave tubing among others. The plan also includes an additional AD&D benefit allowing the insured the opportunity to donate $5,000, in the event of his/her Accidental Death and Dismemberment, to an environmental organization that positively impacts global conservation. This donation is payable by IMG on the insured’s behalf. Patriot Green Group can only be purchased online. Coverage is available from five days up to two years for U.S. citizens traveling outside the U.S. and for non-U.S. citizens traveling outside their home country.
Additionally, both plans offer insureds easy access to more than 17,000 providers through IMG’s proprietary International Provider AccessSM (IPA) when seeking treatment outside the U.S. Insureds can also reduce their out-of-pocket costs when seeking treatment in the U.S. by locating providers through the independent Preferred Provider Organization, a separately organized network of hundreds of thousands of established, highly qualified health care physicians and many well-recognized hospitals in the U.S. contracted by IMG.
Nasser further added, “Our global experience and flexibility, coupled with how we service and support our clients’ needs is what sets us apart in the international insurance market. This allows us to truly provide Coverage Without Boundaries®.”
