The UAE at the Forefront of Global Healthcare
Medical tourism is a growing trend in the global healthcare industry, and in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is leading the way. Currently, it plays host to more than 120 medical facilities and hospitals located within its famous Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) free economic zone that was launched in 2002.
Offering high-quality medical services and treatments, the DHCC also serves as a hub for medical research and education, pharmaceuticals, medical equipment, wellness and more, run by over 35,000 healthcare professionals from all over the world. According to VisitDubai.com, the city welcomed around 300,000 medical tourists from overseas in 2015. By 2020, the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) aims to boost medical tourist arrivals to half a million.
Beyond the Basics
Travel insurance can take care of the basics whenever you're on the road or up in the air. However, global health insurance offers coverage for any medical conditions you may have for an extended period of time. Nevertheless, should you just settle for any insurance product from any insurance company?
Not all international health plans are made equal. Different types of plans offer varying levels of cover, and it's essential that you select one that fulfills your health care requirements. Are preexisting conditions included? Will you have access to the best medical facilities within your medical insurance provider's network?
