Abu Dhabi Health Insurance Coverage Areas

The necessity of international travel for business or pleasure is an important aspect in the lives of many expatriates and professionals living in Abu Dhabi. On many occasions and prior to leaving on such trips, many individuals will seek to complement their existing health care coverage with an Abu Dhabi Travel Health Insurance plan.

Purchasing an additional health insurance plan which is only capable of offering short term coverage is an extra burden at an otherwise busy time, but is sometimes necessary as many individuals may only have local health insurance coverage for Abu Dhabi. If you hold a local Abu Dhabi Medical Insurance policy, your coverage area is generally restricted to the city or the greater Abu Dhabi area.

At Abu Dhabi Health Insurance, we know that many individuals and families appreciate a degree of flexibility within their health insurance policy and that is why we strive to provide you with Abu Dhabi Medical Insurance plans that are capable of offering you global healthcare coverage.

There are a number of important differences between plans that provide local coverage and those that offer international coverage. Please click Local Health Insurance and International Health Insurance for more information.

Geographical Area of Coverage

Abu Dhabi Health Insurance can offer medical plans that provide global coverage and in some cases you may be able to choose from a range of options that provide coverage for specific regions or areas you may be visiting or relocating to.

Two coverage options which are typically available with the plans offered by Abu Dhabi Medical Insurance are:

  • Worldwide
  • Worldwide Excluding the USA

Individual insurance companies and their plans may be able to provide you with a wider range of geographical coverage options; however, Worldwide and Worldwide Excluding the USA are usually included on plans available from Abu Dhabi Health Insurance.

Healthcare treatment in the United States of America is extremely expensive and the cost of receiving medical treatment there is, on average, the highest in the world and this is why many insurance companies will offer global coverage that excludes the USA. If you do not intend to spend a considerable amount of time in the USA, it may be worthwhile considering a plan that does not offer coverage there. Should you choose such a plan, you will pay significantly less for your premium while maintaining international coverage around the world.

It is also important to note that with Abu Dhabi Health Insurance plans, you can decide which medical facility you wish to receive treatment at, provided it is within your designated area of coverage. Although your Abu Dhabi Medical Insurance plan may not cover the USA, you can still access top of the range medical care elsewhere in the world.
