It’s often not until we get sick for the first time in Mexico that we realize that finding quality health care may not be as simple as we imagined. Finding a local doctor who is qualified, speaks English, and will work with your insurance agency can be big concerns in your time of need.
Among the variety of services provided by American Insurance for Expats and IMG is the ability to quickly search for a hospital or doctor of your choice nationally or internationally. When you purchase a health care policy through American Insurance for Expats and IMG, when seeking treatment in the U.S., you have access to the independent Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), a separately organized network of hundreds of thousands of established, highly qualified health care physicians and many well-recognized hospitals in the U.S.. Additionally, to help you locate health care providers outside the U.S., you have access to our International Provider AccessSM (IPA), a database of over 17,000 providers.
The IMG PPO network is organized and administered by The First Health Network. The PPO directory is updated on a routine basis, however, changes may be made between updates. To ensure that the physician you have selected is in the network, please contact the physician’s office to confirm his/her participation. You may also be eligible for a discount on your deductible and coinsurance if you use the PPO network.
There are many benefits to having an international health care policy when living or traveling abroad including a resource you can use to find qualified physicians and hospitals in your neck of the woods. Communication with the doctor or hospital and assistance with claims are only a couple of the benefits to obtaining a health care policy from American Insurance for Expats and IMG.
