Group Medical Insurance
Compulsory in the UAE - with lots of options to navigate.
What is Group Medical Insurance?
UAE companies are now bound by law to provide group medical insurance, which provides private, scaleable medical care for staff.
Even outside of the UAE, ensuring your scheme meets with the unique demands of local and expatriate populations can be challenging.
A huge range of choice and scheme differences can make it a minefield choosing the most appropriate provider for your employees.
Our advisers can provide a detailed understanding of the market; identify the most suitable insurers for your situation; and negotiate compliant, comprehensive, and cost effective cover on your behalf.
Balancing cover with benefit comprehensiveness, bespoke to the demands and needs of your particular industry, is our specialty.
What are the benefits of having Group Medical Insurance?
- The provision of medical insurance for employees is now a legal requirement for companies in the UAE
- Any expenses an employer incurs related to medical insurance are 100% tax-deductible as ordinary business expenses
- Whether medical insurance is compulsory in your SME’s country of operation or not, providing a tiered system of cover for employees can be a cost-effective morale booster (as well prove entirely cost-effective)
