Why Do I Need Health Insurance?
Most people in the UAE receive health insurance from their employers. In fact, in many places it is mandatory for employers to provide health insurance for their employees. However, what many people don’t realize is their coverage may not be comprehensive and can actually have significant limitations.
For example, the government mandated insurance coverage doesn’t include treatments like psychological counseling or even offer rehabilitation for debilitating or neurological conditions. You may also have to visit a health care provider that isn't convenient for you. Your provider may be far away from your home as your preferred provider may not be included in your health care plan.
