CCW Global is able to provide UAE Health Insurance plans which include comprehensive Emergency Evacuation and Repatriation coverage benefits.
An Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit on a health insurance policy in the Middle East will ensure that you are able to be transported to the nearest centre of medical excellence in the event that suitable treatment options are not available locally.
Furthermore, many Emergency Evacuation coverage benefits will include provisions which enable expatriate policyholders to be repatriated to their home nation in the event of a serious medical emergency whilst they are overseas – allowing the policyholder to receive high quality medical treatment within a medical system which they are comfortable using.
Choosing to purchase a Health Insurance policy in the United Arab Emirates which includes an Emergency Evacuation coverage benefit will ensure that you are able to receive high-quality healthcare in an emergency situation, even if no medical facilities are in your immediate vicinity. This is accomplished through an emergency medical evacuation.
Should you be admitted to a medical facility which is unable to provide a suitable standard of care for the medical condition or accident which you are suffering from, then an Emergency Evacuation Coverage Benefit on a UAE health insurance policy will ensure that you are transported to a secondary hospital or medical facility which is able to provide the correct medical treatment.
In some cases, depending on the country which you were in when you became sick or had your accident, an emergency medical evacuation may even transport the policyholder back to their home country for continuing healthcare. This may happen if the UAE emergency evacuation insurance plan includes a repatriation coverage benefit.
If an individual were to pay for the costs of an emergency medical evacuation in the Middle East out-of-pocket, then the costs of the evacuation can exceed US$20,000 – especially if you are being evacuated from a remote are, and have a medical condition which requires intensive care during transport.
Emergency Medical Evacuations under a UAE medical insurance plan are covered when the evacuation is deemed to be a medical necessity. As such, it is important to note that a policyholder cannot simply demand an evacuation or repatriation.
A medical evacuation under a United Arab Emirates is covered when the attending doctor, in conjunction with the insurance company considers the evacuation to be the best medical course of action due to an inability to provide the requisite levels of care in the current medical facility.
