Umm al-Quwain Medical Insurance
Umm al-Quwain is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. It is located to the north, and has about 62,000 inhabitants. Umm al-Quwain has an area of 750 sq. km. Umm al-Quwain is the capital city of the emirate, and has the same name. Umm al-Quwain is bordered by the Arabian Gulf, Sharjah, and Ras al-Khaimah.
Umm al-Quwain has experienced a construction boom that transformed the city into a very modern city filled with tall skyscrapers, good roads, and tourist attractions, while still maintaining its natural beauty. Umm al-Quwain has miles of beautiful beaches that make it a popular destination for vacationers.
Umm al-Quwain is generally warm all year round. The coldest part of the year is from November to March where temperatures are around 26 degrees Celsius in the day, and 15 degrees Celsius at night. In the summer, temperatures can reach 40 degrees Celsius or higher.
Like the other UAE emirates, Umm al-Quwain enjoys high quality healthcare. Umm al-Quwain has a mix of both public and private hospitals. It is also very close to Dubai, which also has a wide range of top quality hospitals. Most hospitals in Umm al-Quwain are well equipped, modern, and can handle any type of medical need. The main problem with public hospitals is that there may be a longer waiting time than the ones at private hospitals. Private hospitals generally have no waiting times.
Another difference between public and private hospitals is that private hospitals are more expensive. Public hospitals are not available to Emirati nationals. All expatriates and visitors will have to pay for all costs. In addition, expatriates can only access public facilities if they have a health card or require emergency treatment. Otherwise, expatriates have to visit private hospitals, which can be very costly.
Expatriates and visitors to Umm al-Quwain should look into private health insurance. While quality is very good, the price is also very high.
