International Marine Medical Insurance

1 Day to 365 Days

Understanding Your Market. Exceeding Your Expectations.

It is rare to find an insurance provider that offers flexible, specialized products and associated services for the marine industry. It is rarer still to find a company with the dedication, resources and ability to professionally administer health care benefits and deliver claims cost containment on a global basis. However, we understand the unique needs of marine crew professionals. In fact, we have an entire marine division dedicated to serving those in this important business segment.

Our team has provided specialized insurance programs for captains, officers and crew members. One such program is the International Marine Medical InsuranceSM (IMMI) plan. This customizable plan offers comprehensive medical coverage to groups of two or more marine crew professionals who live and work aboard ocean-going vessels. Among its many benefits, IMMI helps alleviate some of the burden placed upon vessel owners by the Maritime Labour Convention, which has imposed additional liabilities for medical expenses, and other liabilities related to crews working aboard their vessel.

The IMMI program, coupled with our expertise in marine claims, medical management and international services, will help you and your members properly prepare for sudden injury or illness that occur while on assignment. But we provide more than just insurance; we provide the Global Peace of Mind® marine crew professionals deserve, backed by a team of professionals committed to being there when you need us.

Medical Management Without Boundaries

The ability to access quality health care is essential when a medical emergency arises abroad. From routine medical care and check-ups to complex case management and medical evacuations, we are there to offer our expertise in cost containment and our unique blend of services, including:

International Utilization Management

The key to successfully managing rising health care costs is early identification of catastrophic cases, and then taking action to manage those cases. Precertification is used as a key tool for this early identification of a member's entry into the health care system. This allows our medical staff to be proactive in working with both the member and the providers, assuring delivery of health care in the most appropriate and cost-effective manner.

This allows our medical staff to be proactive in working with both the patient and the providers assuring delivery of health care in the most appropriate and cost-effective manner.

Prior to receiving treatment, members will need to precertify the following procedures to avoid a reduction in benefits:

  • In-patient treatment
  • Inter-facility transfer
  • Maternity
  • Surgery or surgical procedure
  • Treatment in an extended care facility
  • Home nursing care
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation Therapy
  • All transplants

Medical Travel Management

The Medical Travel Management benefit offers the member who is contemplating non-emergency medical treatment in the United States the opportunity to be financially compensated for having that care rendered by a qualified medical provider(s) outside of the U.S.

When treatment is received outside of the U.S., and there is greater than $10,000 cost savings to the Plan, the member will personally share in any cost savings that are realized. The cost savings are calculated using the average U.S. cost of the medical service compared to the actual cost of the medical procedure and associated medical travel costs performed by the non-U.S.-based provider(s).

International Comprehensive Care

Our medical staff will help coordinate care for your members who have highly complex cases requiring detailed management. These services may include assisting with:

  • Concurrent review and monitoring of services for medical necessity
  • Coordination of the hospitalization and any necessary post-discharge care
