What is International Medical Insurance and Why Purchase from International Insurance Group (IIG)?

Did you know that most US and Canadian healthcare plans do not provide coverage for overseas travelers? Did you also know that any medical treatment you receive while on vacation or living in Mexico including doctor visits, hospital stays, medication and emergency transportation are the responsibility of the traveler, and in most cases a patient must pay in full (and in cash) prior to receiving service?

You have enough to worry about when you’re traveling abroad. Don’t let your medical coverage be an uncertainty.

International Insurance Group, Inc. (IIG) has been providing travelers and expats with the best Mexico insurance coverage available since 1999. IIG prides itself on offering international medical insurance as well as home, auto, RV and watercraft coverage from the finest, most respected “A rated” insurance companies in Mexico.

International Medical Group (IMG) knows that the reasons to travel abroad are many and varied – that’s why their products are too. Their full-service approach to providing international medical insurance products includes servicing vacationers, those working or living abroad for short or extended periods, people traveling frequently between countries, and those who maintain multiple countries of residence. To meet all of these needs, they have developed a comprehensive range of major medical, life, dental and disability products that can be tailored to meet your needs.

IMG has developed two Patriot Travel Medical Insurance plans that offer a complete package of short- and long-term international benefits. Patriot International® provides coverage for US citizens traveling outside the US with coverage for brief returns to the US, while Patriot America® provides coverage for non-US citizens traveling outside their home country. Both plans are available for a minimum of 5 days up to a maximum of 2 years, in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Insurance.

Global Medical Insurance (GMI) is a flexible, long-term, annually renewable US-style major medical insurance program designed for US and Canadian citizens living abroad, and non-US citizens throughout the world. GMI offers the flexibility to select from an assortment of four unique benefit plan options – Silver, Gold, Gold Plus and Platinum – each with different levels of coverage. In addition, there are different areas of coverage available, optional riders, as well as multiple deductibles.

Additionally, the plans offer excellent benefits and services to meet your global travel needs. You have access to international, multilingual customer-service centers; claims administrators who process claims from all over the world, handling virtually every language and currency; and 24-hour access to highly qualified coordinators of emergency medical services and international treatment. You can also choose from a wide range of deductibles, several maximum limits and you have access to more than 17,000 providers through our International Provider AccessSM (IPA) when seeking treatment outside the US. You can also reduce your out-of-pocket costs when seeking treatment in the US by locating providers through the independent Preferred Provider Organization.
