By partnering with the National Health Insurance Company - Daman, Globality Health is extending its full international health insurance offering, including 24/7 emergency medical assistance and medical evacuation and repatriation services, to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The partnership with Daman allows Globality Health`s clients to gain access to the largest medical provider network in the U.A.E.
A range of tailor-made corporate products have been designed to meet the local regulatory requirements including those of HAAD (Health Authority of Abu Dhabi) and DHA (Dubai Health Authority). These products are a part of the global CoGenio product family and provide employers with the peace of mind in knowing that their employees are supported by two major experts in health insurance, both in MENA and globally.
Globality Health’s Chief Operating Officer, Axel Tettenborn, believes the relationship will leverage the strengths of both companies to provide quality health cover and service to expatriates in the UAE. “Again, two members of Munich Health take advantage of the synergies within the group to enhance benefits for their customers by strengthening the unique international service proposition.”
