UAE Medical Insurance Plans Designed for Individuals

 

 

Having health insurance is important no matter what stage you are in your life. Whether you are a traveler, family, or individual, it is important to make sure that you protect yourself and your loved ones from any significant financial loss should an unfortunate illness or injury occur.

UAE Medical Insurance finds plans that are specifically tailored for individuals. No matter your budget, age, or location, there is a UAE health insurance plan that can be designed for you.

Plans can be customized with a range of coverage benefits including Out-Patient Treatment, Emergency Evacuation, Maternity, Dental, and many more. This gives you the assurance that your Middle East medical insurance plan will provide you with the exact levels of coverage which you require.

In addition to this, the UAE health insurance policies are extremely flexible; giving you the choice of how you pay for them. Plans can be paid for annually, semi-annually or quarterly, by credit card, bank transfer, cash, or cheque. Policy premiums can be paid in most major currencies, including USD, GBP, and Euro.

We can provide information about options which can significantly lower your premium, such as offering in-patient only plans for catastrophic emergencies, which only provide cover for hospitalization and surgical procedures. To further reduce the premium costs of your Middle East medical insurance policy we can also offer advice on a range of deductibles. In most cases selecting a higher deductible will dramatically lower your overall health insurance costs.

UAE medical insurance options which we work with will allow you to properly prepare for your future. If you are planning on starting a family while on the Arabian Peninsula or GCC, we can help to find coverage which provides with affordable maternity coverage, giving you adequate time to complete any waiting periods associated with the benefit, and ensuring that in the event of any untoward circumstance, both the mother and the newborn will have the protection which they need.

UAE Medical Insurance is a health insurance specialist working on your behalf. We do not represent the interests of any insurance provider. Our team of independent insurance consultants is able to provide the most up-to-date information within the global insurance industry and offer unbiased advice to our clients based on any recent developments. You can utilize our years of experience and relationships with the leading insurers in the market in order to find an insurance solution suitable for your unique needs.

Individual health insurance policies which we work with are normally guaranteed renewable, meaning that your medical insurance policy can be renewed for life; you will never have to worry about being unable to continue on the plan. Policy premiums are unaffected by the number of claims made by the policyholder, and will only increase with your age, and global medical inflation.

For expatriates, it is important to note that many UAE health insurance policies are globally portable, so even if you should relocate away from the Middle East, your plan will travel with you, even back to your home country.

It is advisable for clients to keep an insurance policy active with the same insurer if possible, to ensure that you will be covered in the event that you develop any serious medical conditions. If you do develop a serious condition, it is difficult to receive coverage for that condition under a new policy, because the condition will be treated as a pre-existing condition. If you already have a plan, the insurer will continue to cover you for the lifetime of the policy.

All the plans which we work with can be tailored to meet your needs. As you grow older and your lifestyle changes, you have the ability to add or remove coverage benefits as needed. We understand that it is impossible to plan for your entire future now, which is why your insurance plan can grow with you.

We can help you choose a policy that is most suitable for you or your family. For more information about a UAE medical insurance policy, contact us today for free advice and a comparison table.

      I will be possible to offer you and your wife a full range of options. I need to know whether you require any additional benefits such as Maternity or Dental.

      The plans available differ in many ways, however the important thing for you to consider is how the plans cover serious medical conditions. This is the most important aspect of a Medical Insurance plan and considerations should be given to Chronic condition and Cancer cover.

      Please email us with your dates of birth and I can best advise.

    Hi. I would like to inquire about individual medical insurance for our one employee. Could you please give me quot. She is having husband visa of Abu Dhabi and she is doing job in Dubai.

    Reply

  4. Darren:

    Dear Ali, It is indeed possible to source Insurance that will cover a member who is on an Abu Dhabi Visa but working in Dubai. As the member is on an Abu Dhabi Visa it is essential that she enrolls on a plan that is HAAD compliant. This insurance is compliant with Abu Dhabi regulations and offers slightly different benefits to that of a standard plan.

    Please let me know the date of birth of the person to be insured so that i can prepare some options for you. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you. Regards Darren

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      We'd definitely be able to provide a quotation for your wife and daughter. However, we'd need to know a few more details in order to do so.

      We work with over 20 different insurance providers and each of them offers a wide range of plans. To help you narrow down the options, the first thing we'd need to know is the type of plan you are looking for.

      The most basic package that you can get is an inpatient only plan which covers hospitalization, surgeries, overnight stays, etc...
      On top of this, you can also get an outpatient package, which covers your doctor's visits, diagnostic tests, medication, etc... If you are looking to have another child in the next 2 -3 years, then it will also be good to look at a maternity package. For your 5 month old daughter, a package with good vaccination and checkup benefits will also be useful to consider.

      If you can give me a better idea of the benefits you want, I can send over a full quotation.

      Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

      Hi Denis,

      There are several medical insurance providers that can offer your son annual medical cover. Some of our insurer offer plans designed for students specifically. However, if a student plans is not suitable for you we can offer various alternatives that can meet your requirements. We work with the majority of the international medical insurers in the market such as OIC and Bupa, Now Health, William Russell, Integraglobal and several others whom will offer comprehensive cover for your son. Please be aware that most these plans are annual contracts and cannot not be cancelled before the end date of the policy. I suggest that you speak to one of our consultants that can provide you with a quotation, and further explain the plans available to your son.

    hi,i am looking for medical insurance( for my 30 month daughter and 33 years old wife) only for visa purpose. Because I am in Abu Dhabi visa, and i want to sponsor my family here. Please inform me what is the minimum package.

    Reply

    1. Aurora:

      Dear Nibu,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Yes, we can supply a plan for your daughter and wife for visa purposes.

      However, since Abu Dhabi plans have a certain minimum standard that requires them to cover pre-existing conditions, I need to check to see whether there are any that needs to be covered.

      I'd recommend AXA Gulf in this scenario and for a 30 month old and 33 year old female, the rate would be 5022 AED per year.

      Please let me know if there are any pre-existing medical conditions as that can change the cost of the plan.

    Hi,
    Does/can your insurance cover psychiatry sessions? How much would the plan be?
    thanks.

    Reply

    1. Jim:

      Thank you very much for enquiring about international medical insurance. We work with over 40 international medical insurance companies, including the likes of OIC and Bupa, Allianz, AXA PPP, Cigna, Aetna, Interglobal, William Russell, Now Health, Integra global, Geo Blue/HTH and many others.

      Each plan differs in how they cover psychiatry sessions. Typically, you'll need a plan which covers general outpatient visits, as psychiatry sessions are generally considered an outpatient benefit. Some plans cover these in full as others have a limit on the number of sessions per year or an overall cap on the amount that can be claimed.

      It will also depend if the insurer considers it a pre-existing condition or if it is developed while on the plan. Typically because conditions developed before joining the plan are considered pre-existing, it's better to join a plan early and stay with that plan. However, there are companies like Interglobal and others which have more lenient underwriting policies toward pre-existing conditions.

      Our knowledgeable consultants can help navigate you through the purchasing process to ensure matching you with the most suited insurance plan.

      Dear Bin,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      If you are already pregnant, there is no insurance that can cover your routine maternity costs. However, we do work with insurers that can cover things like newborn coverage, premature birth, congenital conditions, etc...

      Would you be interested? I can send over some quotations for you if you'd like.

    Hi. Can I apply for your policy disregarding of which UAE emirate I live in?
    Thanks

    Reply

    1. Filip:

      Yes, we offer policies which are available for anyone who lives in all of the seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah and Umm Al Quwain. It is true that the laws which regulate private health insurance can differ from one emirate to another, especially in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. We always make sure to that you the policy which you choose is fully compliant with the local regulations. If your budget is limited, we can offer you health insurance plans with either local or regional coverage. Local plans will cover you in the UAE only, whereas regional plan can cover you in Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and some of the South-East Asia countries. Since many insurance companies are locally licensed, it is often possible to apply for a plan which will provide Outpatient coverage with Direct Billing. This solution is very convenient since you do not have to incur any expenses out of your pocket when visiting a doctor or a specialist.

    1. Samantha:

      Hi Khamar, we work with over 20 different insurance companies that have great maternity benefit, such as OIC and Bupa, NOW, and Integra. For all the insurance companies there is a waiting period for maternity coverage. The waiting period ranging from 10 – 12 months. What this mean is that once you have purchase a policy, you will need to wait 10-12 months before the insurance company will start to cover for your routine maternity. However, if you do get pregnant before you purchase the insurance, then there is no insurer out there that will cover you for your pregnancy. I can help you find a suitable policy that have a great maternity coverage and also covers the hospitals that you have requested. For all of our insurer, majority of them covers you anywhere you in Dubai and worldwide.

      Yes we certainly do. Whilst most insurers require an adult to accompany a child onto a medical insurance plan, we work with several insurers who will accept children on their own, some of which will still offer a family discount when only children are insured.

  15. Shanker:

    Can I purchase a policy just for my child, if I live in the UAE? Will this type of policy allow me to access best hospitals there?
    Kind Regards

    Reply

    1. Filip:

      Yes. Although most of the insurers will require that at least one parent is insured by the same policy, there are some providers who will be happy to offer you a plan covering your child alone. It is important to remember that vast majority of local providers will not allow your child take out its own policy, hence your only option might be applying for either a worldwide-coverage plan or a regional one. Naturally, in case of a child-alone policy, one of the parents will actually be the policy holder. Pacific Prime offers policies which will allow your child to receive medical treatment in the best hospitals and clinics in the UAE, including European and American facilities. In most cases, it would be possible to receive treatment with Direct Billing / Direct Settlement, which means that even when receiving Outpatient-type of treatment, you won’t incur any expenses out of your pocket.

    Hello. Do you offer maternity from Bupa? I live in Dubai, I m 28 years old female, married. I can wait for maternity cover of 10 months. Kindly send me quotation.

    Reply

    1. Liz:

      Bupa offer one of the most comprehensive insurance plans on the market and in Dubai are the most widely recognized in hospitals and with OBGYNs. The main advantage is that their waiting period is one of the shortest at 10 months therefore any maternity related costs you incur 10 months from the start date of your policy will be paid for by Bupa.
      Bupa also offer complete freedom of choice of hospital and clinic, you are not restricted to a network. Therefore Bupa will pay for any medical treatment you may receive in the City Hospital in Dubai. For all treatment received while hospitalized Bupa will pay directly and outpatient treatment is on a pay and claim basis. Bupa operate a smooth claims reimbursement facility.

    Could you please provide me with some options and quotations?

    1. Luke:

      Here in Dubai, many companies will offer medical insurance for their employees, but not for their dependants. This can cause issues for those who have young children, particularly newborns, as it is a requirement within the UAE for newborns to have frequent vaccinations which can prove quite costly. This aside, local insurance companies within the UAE will not insure children alone, they require at least one parent to be on the plan as well. However, many international insurers (with which we primarily work), do offer ‘Child Alone’ packages. This means that we are able to offer a range of options in these situations to take the strain off both your mind, and your pocket!
