A proprietary online service located in our MyAccount that provides you information and tools to manage your account anytime, anywhere.Our service centers in the U.S. and Europe are available to assist with emergencies 24 hours a day, and you have immediate access to important tools and resources.

Extensive Provider Networks

When seeking treatment in the U.S. that is covered under the plan, you can reduce your out-of-pocket costs by using the independent Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), a separately organized network of hundreds of thousands of established, highly qualified medical practitioners and many well recognized hospitals in the U.S. contracted by the administrator. You can quickly search the network. Additionally, to help you locate health care providers outside of the U.S., we provide an online International Provider Access℠ (IPA), a database of more than 17,000 physicians and facilities.

Medical Management

The ability to access quality health care is of paramount importance when a medical emergency arises abroad. To coordinate care and provide internationally based medical management services, the administrator formed a URAC accredited, on-site specialized division devoted entirely to medical management. The administrator's clinical members are experts at assessing the need for services and ensuring those services are delivered in a timely, cost-effective manner. From routine medical care to complex case management, from check-ups to emergency medical evacuations, we are there for you. We are committed to patient protection and empowerment, quality operations and provider compliance. This translates into better care for you - around the world, around the clock.

Quality Guarantee

Your satisfaction is very important to us. If you are not pleased with this product for any reason, and you have made no claims, you may submit a written request, up to five days after your initial effective date, for cancellation and refund of your premium.

The following conditions apply:

  1. You will be required to pay a $50 cancellation fee
  2. Only full month premiums will be considered for refunds

For example, if you choose to cancel your coverage two months and two weeks prior to the date your coverage ends, the administrator will only consider the two full months for a refund. If you have filed claims, your premium is non-refundable.

Enrollment & Fulfillment Process

Before you begin your travel, simply apply online or complete and return the application. If you are applying as a family, you may include yourself and your spouse on one application. Once your application is processed, the administrator will email the fulfillment kit(s) to the email address listed on the application form. The fulfillment kit(s) will include identification card(s), declaration of insurance and a Certificate Wording containing a description of benefits, exclusions and terms of the plan.

If you do not choose online fulfillment, the administrator will mail your fulfillment materials to the address listed on the application form, which may cause delays. We recommend online fulfillment for immediate access to your coverage information.

GlobeHopper Senior Single-Trip Extension of Coverage

The GlobeHopper Senior Single-Trip plan is eligible to be extended up to 12 months from the initial effective date, provided there is not a break in coverage. Extensions are available in daily and monthly increments and may be completed online or by using a paper application; however, extensions of less than one month must be completed online. For each extension of less than one month that is completed online, you will be charged an additional $5 processing fee. Each insured person must only satisfy one deductible within each 12-month coverage period.

Claims Procedure


Certain treatment and supplies including hospital admission, inpatient or outpatient surgery and other procedures as noted in the Certificate of Insurance must be precertified for medical necessity. This means the member or his/her attending physician must communicate with a representative prior to admission to a hospital, receiving certain treatments and supplies or performance of a surgery. In case of an emergency admission, the precertification call must be made within 48 hours of the admission or as soon as reasonably possible. If a hospital admission or a surgery is not precertified, eligible claims and expenses will be reduced by 50%. It is important to note that precertification is only a determination of medical necessity, not an assurance of coverage, verification of benefits or a guarantee of payment. All medical expenses eligible for reimbursement must be medically necessary and will be paid or reimbursed at usual, reasonable and customary rates. Please refer to the Certificate of Insurance for full details of the precertification requirements.

Note: An insured person may begin the precertification process through the MyAccount of our website. Simply look for the precertification option. You will be asked to provide the required information, which can then be submitted electronically. Once we have confirmed receipt of your request, our utilization management and review team will review the information provided and should respond to the insured person or the provider within two business days. Please note that this online service will only initiate the precertification process, and it should not be used to precertify emergency admissions, procedures or evacuations.

Claims Payment

All benefits payable under a GlobeHopper Senior plan are subject to the terms and conditions in the insurance contract. Claims for eligible medical expenses may be paid in two ways:

  1. Eligible expenses that have been paid by or on behalf of the insured person may be reimbursed by check directly to the insured person
  2. Eligible expenses that have not yet been paid by the insured person may, at the option of the administrator, be paid either to the insured person or directly to the provider

Claim forms can also be accessed at MyAccount and mailed to International Medical Group, P.O. Box 88500, Indianapolis, IN 46208-0500 USA.
