Why we like it:
IMG Global Medical Insurance (GMI) is one of our most popular plans for international business people and expatriates up to age 75 on a budget. It is a flexible, long-term, annually renewable, U.S.-style major medical insurance plan. It was designed to be affordable for both Non-U.S. and U.S. citizens living abroad, as well as local nationals. We like that it offers rich benefits for a low price. Your deductible is reduced by 50% for care received outside the U.S.

Why choose this IMG GMI Plan?
IMG GMI and GMMI (for charitable workers) are two of our most popular plans due to the benefits offered and affordable price for both U.S. and non-U.S. expatriates up to 75 years of age.
Global Medical Insurance allows you to choose from several plan options, customize your length and area of coverage and select from multiple deductibles and modes of payment to help fit your needs and budget.
While the costs of health care are rising worldwide, IMG is committed to keeping international health insurance premiums affordable. As part of that commitment, IMG offers a Medical Concierge program that saves you on out-of-pocket medical expenses. They also offer cash incentives if you receive treatment outside the U.S. and waive 50% of your deductible for treatment outside the U.S. to save you even more!
The GMI program also provides different underwriting methods to extend medical coverage to you in case you were declined by other companies.
Four options to choose from. We recommend either the Gold or Platinum plan for:
- Those working in “for profit” companies outside the U.S.
- Entrepreneurs wanting strong overseas insurance coverage
- Needing temporary U.S. coverage while visiting family and friends in the U.S. (up to 6 months a year)
- Those wanting “5-Star” international medical coverage – Consider the GMI Platinum plan
