Medcare Hospital, the premium private healthcare provider in the UAE, announced that the facility has been empaneled with the Dubai Government-funded Saada Health Insurance Program for citizens.
This tie-up will ensure the Emiratis in Dubai access to the highest quality of services and care offered by the best of doctors on board at Medcare facilities.
HH Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, launched the Saada smart scheme last month aimed at providing health cover in private hospitals for Emiratis with no previous government or private insurance coverage. A large number of citizens have enrolled for the plan.
Medcare Hospital is first among the private hospitals in the emirate to be empaneled with the Saada Insurance program. The citizens, who are with registered with the Saada scheme, only need to show their Emirates ID cards to avail benefits of the smart health coverage program at Medcare facilities.
Commenting on the tie-up with Saada insurance plan, Mr. Ala Atari, CEO of Medcare Hospital, said, “We are glad to receive Emiratis, who are enrolled for the Saada scheme, at the state-of-the-art facilities of Medcare and provide them the best in class medical treatments available in the region. As a premium private hospital in the region, Medcare extends its full support for this Dubai Government initiative.”
