IMG Europe adds to international healthcare product

IMG Europe, the European subsidiary of International Medical Group (IMG), has made changes to its international healthcare product.

The product, GlobalSelect International Healthcare Cover, is designed for organisations to offer to expatriate employees and local nationals.

Changes include: the addition of sight and hearing tests as well as vaccinations to the annual wellness benefits; political and security evacuation and repatriation benefits; out of country criminal assault benefits; natural disaster evacuation and accommodation benefit; and international access to a medical information service staffed by board-certified physicians, pharmacists and psychologists.

Carl Carter, managing director of IMG Europe, said: “Customer feedback told us clients like their loyalty rewarded, especially when they have not made a claim.

“Expats’ needs are changing as assignments become more challenging and move farther afield. Gone are the days where a one-size-fits-all-style expat medical plan will suffice. Expats need choice and flexibility of cover, and in many cases they are now looking for protection over and above that of traditional in-patient and out-patient costs.
