UAE introduces new healthcare insurance for tourists and families

Comprehensive healthcare insurance of just Dh 149, that covers consumers and incoming tourists with a complete healthcare package, has been launched by Mulk Med Healthcare, located at the Indian Club in Oud Metha. The package brings healthcare providers, pharmaceutical companies, health insurers, and global health experts under one platform.

Approved by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), and the Telecommunications and Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA), the Mulk Med Privilege Health Card will be applicable for UAE tourists, students, corporations, communities, individuals, and families, covering all their healthcare needs through unlimited 24/7 online video consultations.

Speaking with Khaleej Times, Dr Nawab Shafi Ul Mulk, president, and co-founder of Mulk Med Healthcare said that they have tied up with 100 hospitals and 300 pharmacies across the globe, and are collaborating with more healthcare groups. “We have tied up with most of the reputed hospitals in the UAE, like Aster, Al Zahra, Zulekha, Prime, and many more,” said Dr Shafi.

Privileged card holders can even benefit from a wide range of services like 24/7 online consultation, get medicines delivered to their doorstep, diagnosis, online consultation, and even surgery.

In the event that a visitor faces medical compliations during their trip to the UAE, Dr Shafi says, “he/she is liable for a comprehensive medical package of Dh 150,000.” He added that the validity period of the insurance is 90 days.

“However, our insurance coverage is also valid for pre-existing chronic conditions, in the case of an emergency, and cannot be claimed by patients with a history of ailments or diseases,” added Dr Shafi.

The duration of approval is one day, with emergency cases given top priority – they will be approved in minutes, said Dr Shafi, adding that people of any age group can avail the package.

Tourists can apply for travel insurance through the company’s website and can also apply from various partnered ticketing platforms. “We have plans to partner with Emirates and other ticketing platforms”, he added.

Tourists who would like to apply for insurance just require their national ID, a passport and will need to answer a few questions on the company’s website.

Nawab Shaji Ul Mulk, chairman of Mulk International Group, announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Govt of Zimbabwe for the implementation of Mulk virtual hospitals and digital healthcare platforms across the country.

Multiple diagnostic facilities, laboratories and express pharmacies there will be linked with Mulk Med Healthcare network, allowing 24/7 live video consultations with its panel of physicians.
