Medical Practitioners in International Medical Insurance

Understanding the Role of Medical Practitioners in IPMI

Medical practitioners refer to licensed healthcare professionals who are authorized to diagnose, treat, and care for patients. In the context of IPMI (International Private Medical Insurance), these medical practitioners may include doctors, nurses, and other specialists who are involved in providing medical treatment to the insured person. For example, if an insured person experiences a medical emergency while overseas, they may be required to visit a local medical practitioner for an initial consultation and diagnosis. The medical practitioner’s report may then be used by the IPMI provider to determine the appropriate course of action, including arranging for further medical treatment if necessary.
