September 11, 2012
(INDIANAPOLIS – SEPTEMBER 11, 2012) - International Medical Group®, Inc. (IMG®), a worldwide leader in designing, distributing and administering global health care benefits, announced it enhanced its travel insurance product line, adding to its diverse product portfolio. The Patriot T.R.I.P.® (Travel Itinerary Protection) series of products targets travelers in various markets and provides a wealth of benefits to help protect their vacation investments from costly travel delay, baggage and medical expenses. Insured travelers may also recover non-refundable, unused payments and deposits when a trip is cancelled or interrupted for a variety of reasons.
Separate from these benefits, the programs provide non-insurance emergency travel assistance, such as helping insureds replace lost travel documents or lost prescriptions, embassy or consulate referral, emergency cash transfers, and legal and medical referrals when necessary.
According to Jeff Nasser, senior vice president of international marketing at IMG, travelers should prepare for the unexpected. “Anything can happen when you travel. Unfortunately, unforeseen events can quickly ruin your travel plans, and that time and money you spent may be lost. These benefits and services are designed to make your trip as stress-free as possible.”
The four programs within the Patriot T.R.I.P. series are underwritten by Sirius America Insurance Company (Sirius America). As a wholly owned subsidiary of Sirius International Insurance Corporation (publ) (Stockholm, Sweden), Sirius America is rated A (Excellent) by A.M. Best. Some benefits include:
- Coverage for trip durations to 31 days (options available for longer durations)
- Trip cancellation protection in the event of a stolen passport or visa;
- Trip cancellation protection for work reasons;
- Missed connection coverage;
- Trip cancellation due to a family member’s participation in an athletic championship event; and
- Coverage for theft of mobile business equipment.
Mr. Nasser added, “Our goal is to support our customers’ unique needs. By offering a multitude of travel insurance programs that are backed by world-class services, we can help safeguard their travel investments from unforeseen circumstances and provide true Global Peace of Mind®.”
