Unique medical service: The Medical Concierge program
Whether the insured is seeking care in a local facility or in an unfamiliar location, the quality of the care is the primary concern. Our Medical Concierge program is designed to provide critical information on provider ratings, treatment outcome and cost of care prior to receiving medical treatment. A personal Medical Concierge assigned to clients requiring substantial medical attention will review specific non-emergency medical conditions and provide complete information on provider ratings, past outcomes and general costs – all in the area where the client plans to receive treatment.
IMG’s Medical Concierge helps your client to make an informed decision when seeking medical care within the U.S. Also, he or she can receive a reduction in the deductible for utilizing this unique medical service. This level of individualized service is unmatched in the international arena. Please note due to the high level of data required for this service, Medical Concierge service is restricted to facilities within the U.S.

In the event medical care is needed, our on-site clinical staff coordinates with the medical provider and treating facility to respond to the unique needs and circumstances the insured may face.
