Why Consider International Travel Insurance?

Traveling abroad can be an exciting experience. But what would happen if you or one of your family members became ill or injured while away from home? International travel can quickly turn frightening if you’re not prepared for a medical emergency.

Most travelers assume they will be covered by their standard medical plan. The truth is, while traditional plans may offer adequate domestic coverage, they are not designed for international travel. Without even realizing it, you may be putting your health - and that of your family - at risk.
You have enough to worry about when you’re traveling. Don’t let your medical coverage be an uncertainty. International Medical Group® (IMG®) has developed two Patriot Travel Medical Insurance® plans to provide you and your family Coverage Without Boundaries® so you can spend more time enjoying your international experience, and less time worrying about your medical coverage.
Why Patriot Travel?
The two Patriot® travel plans offer a complete package of international benefits available 24 hours a day. Patriot International® provides coverage for U.S. citizens traveling outside the U.S. with coverage for brief returns to the U.S., while Patriot America® provides coverage for non-U.S. citizens traveling outside their home country. Both plans are available for a minimum of 10 days up to a maximum of two years, in accordance with the terms of the Certificate of Insurance. 
Additionally, the plans offer excellent benefits and services to meet your global 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 U.S. You can also reduce your out-of-pocket costs when seeking treatment in the U.S. by locating providers through the independent Preferred Provider Organization.
