Do not do business with this company! Truly the worst experience with an insurance company I ever had. The company denied my claim because: “United Airlines indicates the purchased airline tickets have a credit value that can be applied toward future travel. A credit is not considered a loss until the credit is no longer available for use. United has indicated the credit is valid for one year from the issue date. The issue date is November 20, 2019. Additionally, they have indicated change fees would be waived for these tickets if exchanged. In the event the credit remains unused and is not reissued prior to the expiration date, please contact iTI® at 866.243.7524 once the credit has expired for further claim consideration. Documentation will be required from the United Airlines stating credit has expired and was not used.”

This decision is not only at odds with public policy on corporate responsibility in an unprecedented business environment, but is incorrect for the following legal reasons:
1. I purchased non-refundable airline tickets for a trip that we preemptively canceled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic using the Cancel for Any Reason provision within our policy. Had we not taken these preemptive measures to protect our family and fellow world citizens out of an abundance of caution, we would have been entitled to a full refund of the airfare when the flight was officially canceled.
2. I was unable to find an explicit stipulation that a non-refundable airline travel credit must expire before a claim can be filed identified in the terms and conditions of my policy. Moreover, while the “loss” they referred to as basis for denial is not a defined term in my insurance policy, it is generally accepted that a loss refers to the monetary injury that results from the occurrence of the contingency for which the insurance was taken out. There is no situation that will occur to make non-refundable travel credits refundable. These credits cannot legitimately be construed as monetary currency, and as such we incurred the loss on the date we canceled the flights.
3. We specifically indicated on the Authorization form of our claim that we will not be using our airline tickets and included a copy of the electronic ticket confirmation which included the ticket numbers as appropriate. It is our expectation that the company would follow standard business practice and request the airline void any non-refundable credits pursuant to the claim and pay out on the legitimate claim submitted. We are absolute in our statement that we will not ever use these credits, as we do not plan to travel by plane at any time in the foreseeable future.

The Company denied my appeal without addressing the points noted above, instead citing general policy language regarding irrelevant terms, which explicitly construed were satisfied - very bizarre.

The plan coverage to cost ratio was great. I did make one small claim for about $175. Unfortunately it took FIVE months for them to process and deposit my claim into my bank account. FIVE months. I have 27 correspondences with them via and 9 phone call records on my phone. I can't even tell you how many questions (emails) went unanswered. I finally had to employ the assistance of a claims specialist from InsureMyTrip.com to look into this. Coincidentally just days later I received my reimbursement. Just a little communication from IMG would've eased the process and kept me from wondering what was going on. I received so much mis-information from them it's not even funny. I felt like I was a supervisor there who needed to constantly remind the staff to follow-up and reiterate repeated information over and over. I booked another plan for the current trip that I am on and it was NOT with IMG.

Several emails sent for medical claim from Peru and Ecuador did not go through. Email address was checked and was correct. I tried filing the claim by email when returned to USA and still would not go through. Finally I called and had the insurer email me and I replied with claim attachments and then it went through. Email address in question is [email protected] this needs to be fixed. It took 3 weeks after claim submission on 2/22/19 to get the check.

I understand that insurance on a trip like my husband and I took was necessary. I'm certainly glad we did not have any problems that would have required us to make a claim. As far as rating your services, I really do not have an opinion good or bad. Just glad the trip was uneventful and we didn't need your services. Thank you very much.
