Patriot Student Exchange Program

Designed for students studying abroad or participants of cultural exchange programs. Coverage is designed to meet the U.S. J1 and J2 visa travel insurance requirements. IMG has developed two Patriot Exchange Program plans that offer a complete package of international benefits available 24 hours a day. The Standard Short-Term Travel Plan is designed to meet the U.S. visa travel insurance requirements for a student studying abroad or a participant of cultural exchange, while the Basic Short-Term Travel Plan is more of an economical plan. Both plans provide coverage for dependents and may be purchased in monthly increments. You can choose from a range of plan maximums and additional add-on coverages. You may also seek treatment with the hospital or doctor of your choice. 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 physicians and many hospitals in the U.S. contracted by IMG. You can quickly search the network through MyIMG.
