Jan 12, 2015

INDIANAPOLIS – January 14, 2015 – International Medical Group®, Inc. (IMG®) launched its new GlobeHopperSM Senior product today, which provides seniors who are 65 years of age and older, with international medical insurance and emergency services while travelling outside the United States.

“GlobeHopper Senior is a unique addition to our short-term travel medical insurance portfolio,” said Amanda Winkle, Vice President of International Sales at IMG. “Applicants can select from two different plan options, Single-Trip and Multi-Trip, and can get instant quotes and apply online without medical underwriting.”

GlobeHopper Senior offers market leading, affordable travel medical insurance that bridges the gap left by other limited domestic plans that do not cover seniors when they leave the country. The product provides a range of benefits, including immediate access to emergency and non-emergency care, 24/7 customer service and support from anywhere in the world, and the option to select a hospital or doctor of the insured’s choice.

With more than 17,000 preferred physicians and medical facilities in more than 170 countries, GlobeHopper Senior ensures that seniors will not be stranded when emergencies strike. “One of our most important values,” says Brian Barwick, President and CEO of IMG, “is our dedication to protecting the health and well-being of our customers, wherever they are.”

The launch of GlobeHopper Senior kicks off the Silver Anniversary for IMG after 25 years in the international medical insurance business. “We are extremely excited to be celebrating 25 years in business, and IMG is thrilled to be kicking off the Silver Anniversary with the launch of GlobeHopper Senior” said Mr. Barwick.
