Whether you’ve heard about it or not, the famous and widely accepted concept of health insurance is about to get mainstream in Dubai. There are several reasons to it, each having more benefits of patients. It is quite natural for patients to feel happy and satisfied about it and why shouldn’t they, it is something they never had before. The making of positive health changes is a welcome sign that Dubai is now gearing up to become a major player in the world stage when it comes to healthcare. Keep in mind that you may not have had your health insurance card up until now, you should hurry up and make one. Through the insurance health card, you will be able to take leverages you didn’t know about earlier.
Keep in mind that Dubai government has made it mandatory to provide employee insurance for all businesses operating within the country. Regardless of how businesses see it, where some might have reservations about the decision but overall this is good news for the city and its future. Here is more on why having mandatory employee insurance is going to have a positive impact on the city in the longer run:
Since the advent of new policy that every business in Dubai is liable to provide health insurance for employees, it can now be said that the cost of health insurance will come down a little. Though it will take some time, it is a positive step in the right direction and will prove to be the cornerstone to make Dubai a major healthcare hub in the region. Perhaps the biggest benefit of having health insurance for employees is that it will help popular local as well as international companies move into Dubai. This will help increase the competition and will likely create a positive environment for healthcare industry to flourish. It will likely improve the existing healthcare environment to the extent that people will begin to see Dubai as an emerging player in healthcare market. Though it is already happening and we see Dubai being noted as a rising healthcare hub in the GCC region, there is still a lot of ground to cover. With that in mind, arrival of more healthcare insurance providers will only increase the competition which will make room for more investment. As a rule of thumb, more investment means affordable healthcare will reach all in Dubai.
The future of healthcare insurance in general is bright.
