International Medical Group Launches Insurance Offerings for Expats in UAE
May 12, 2016
International Medical Group, Inc., a global benefits and assistance services group headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, has just entered the United Arab Emirates market. Its first offering is a suite of insurance products targeted at expatriates living in the UAE.
Compliant with the Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) and the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), MediGlobal provides a comprehensive international medical insurance solution for the entire UAE.
"We've served the expatriate community for more than 25 years, so it was only appropriate that IMG establish its presence in the UAE — a market where more than 80% of the population is comprised of expats," said IMG President Todd A. Hancock. "MediGlobal is an extension of IMG's commitment to this community, and we're confident that it will provide the benefits and services they need."
Launched in partnership with RAK Insurance, MediGlobal has three plan options:
- MediElite – A plan with a comprehensive list of benefits and maximum limits.
- MediSelect – A plan that offers a full list of benefits but with slightly lower limits.
- MediEssentials – An essential, limited plan that covers the most important health insurance needs.
In addition to providing comprehensive benefits, MediGlobal plans offer competitive premiums and 24/7 assistance — from claims management to worldwide care coordination.
"For more than 40 years, we've been committed to providing products and services that lead the market and exceed customer needs and expectations," said Andrew Smith, CEO of RAK Insurance. "MediGlobal was designed to do just that, and we're thrilled to partner with IMG to offer a product that best serves expatriates in the UAE."
