International Medical Group Awarded Peace Corps Health Care Benefit Services Contract
INDIANAPOLIS (April 18, 2017) — International Medical Group® (IMG®), a leader in global benefits and assistance services, was recently awarded a five-year contract with the Peace Corps.
The Health Care Benefit Services contract, which includes one base year and four option years, is scheduled to take effect on May 1, 2017.
“We are honored to serve more than 7,000 Peace Corps volunteers all over the world who are dedicating their time to helping others,” said Chief Revenue Officer Craig Peters. “I am confident in our ability to ‘be there’ for them as they set out on their missions to change lives and tackle the globe’s most pressing challenges.”
IMG will manage the Peace Corps self-funded Health Care Benefit Services Program while volunteers are actively serving, then will manage up to a three-month Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) short-term health insurance program once they return from service. IMG’s services for Peace Corps invitees, volunteers, and returned volunteers will include customer service, claims processing, telehealth solutions and health care provider and pharmacy network access.
IMG already provides a range of services to similar government-sponsored health care programs, including AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America, and AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps and AmeriCorps Federal Emergency Medical Act.
