International Medical Group® (IMG®) has announced a new partnership with MAGNUS International Search & Rescue, a comprehensive emergency management and global on-ground search and rescue service provider based in Israel.
With more than 30 years of experience serving global travelers, MAGNUS will now offer IMG travel medical insurance plans to travelers, exchange students, and global citizens along with a MAGNUS search and rescue membership. IMG insurance plans will allow MAGNUS customers to have proper medical coverage in the event of an illness or injury while traveling outside their country of residence.
“Global instability is a growing concern for travelers around the world, and with many apprehensive about their safety abroad, they feel the need to take preventative measures when planning their trip,” said Or Lev, MAGNUS Chief Executive Officer. “MAGNUS is here to prioritize the safety of all travelers, and we believe offering IMG travel medical insurance in conjunction with our search and rescue membership will allow our customers to feel as safe as possible wherever their travels take them.”
The MAGNUS suite of services includes crisis response, security risk management, evacuation planning and execution, and 24/7 control centers in Tel Aviv, East Africa, Europe, and Northeast Asia. MAGNUS’s global network of high-ranking government officials, search and rescue units, private hospitals, helicopter operators, security professionals, and emergency medical teams ensures local support and rapid assistance to travelers around the world. MAGNUS also utilizes tailor-built technology to provide customers with round-the-clock access to emergency response through satellite location tracking, access to safety and medical assistance experts, weather-related alerts, and more.
“We are proud to partner with MAGNUS to further extend the reach of our best-in-class insurance products to travelers who trust MAGNUS as their search and rescue service provider," said Tamika Bullock, IMG Sales Service Center Director. “Reaching new markets with IMG's safety solutions is a key role in IMG’s strategic growth, and we will continue to seek out strategic partnerships with companies like MAGNUS in the future.”
