IMG Renames Specialty Adventure Product

Apr 15, 2010

(INDIANAPOLIS – APRIL 15, 2010) – International Medical Group®, Inc. (IMG®), a driving force and leader in the international health insurance market, today announced the new name for one of its specialty international insurance products:  Patriot AdventureSM.  

The product, formerly Patriot Extreme®, received a name change to better reflect the scope of its coverage, and to appeal to a broader, more appropriate audience.  Patriot Adventure is designed for people who intend to participate in the thrill of adventure sports while traveling internationally.

“Extreme was a good name to market the product at the time it was introduced a few years ago,” said Joseph Brougher, President of IMG.  “However, we’ve since enhanced it by adding coverage for several new activities, and we feel the word ‘adventure’ more accurately describes what those are.”

A few of the newly added activities include:

  • Jungle zip lining
  • Wildlife safaris
  • Cave tubing    
  • Motorcycle/ Motorscooter riding
  • Snowmobiling  Trekking
  • Surfing  
  • Wakeboarding

The benefits of Patriot Adventure reach beyond coverage for injuries sustained during adventure activities.  It also provides a wide range of international emergency benefits commonly not found on standard domestic plans including emergency evacuation, emergency reunion, return of mortal remains and more.  Additionally, insureds have access to 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 treatment.  Insureds also have access to more than 17,000 providers when seeking treatment outside the U.S. using IMG’s International Provider AccessSM (IPA).
