Now Health International has announced the launch of its Group IPMI products in Abu Dhabi, completing the expansion of its operations across the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Zahir Sharif, Managing Director of Middle East and Africa at Now Health International said “We are thrilled to be able to offer our award winning products and services to customers in Abu Dhabi, and this expansion of our operations is testimony to our commitment to the region. By completing our presence across the UAE, we are now able to add value to our distribution partners by offering a single IPMI solution for their clients across the region. Our operations in the UAE have grown from strength to strength since we launched almost six years ago, and we are continuing to tailor our offer to meet the needs of the local market”.
“Today’s launch marks the next step in our journey to expand our offering across the Middle East and Africa, as we work to create a truly global service proposition for our customers. I am confident that our new Abu Dhabi offering, combined with our innovative products and customer service, make us well placed to capitalise on the rapid growth the IPMI industry has seen in recent years” added Martin Garcia, CEO of Now Health International/Best Doctors Insurance.
The move comes as part of broader plans to grow the business globally following the acquisition of Best Doctor’s Insurance in 2015. Now Health International has confirmed that its WorldCare Advance, Excel and Apex insurance plans, currently available in all other parts of the UAE, are now compliant with the Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD), and are available to Group customers with a minimum of ten employees.
The move will allow Now Health International to offer its WorldCare plans to Groups based solely in Abu Dhabi, as well as the large number of Groups based in other parts of the world, but with a proportion of their employees resident in Abu Dhabi. Consistent with Now Health International’s operations across the UAE, the WorldCare plans issued in Abu Dhabi will be insured by RSA Insurance and administered by Now Health International, as part of the recent partnership launched between the two companies in June of 2016.
New Abu Dhabi Group customers will have access to the full range of Now Health International benefits and services available to existing UAE customers, including their fast and accurate claims processing and innovative online portfolio and Smartphone App, which allow customers to easily search for the nearest medical provider and submit a claim online. Now Health International is also strengthening its provider network so customers will be able to access world class medical providers in Abu Dhabi, as well as the company’s extensive global network.
