Mr. Hisham Radwan General Manager of Aetna's Operations in the Middle East and Africa said that additional growth is expected in the health insurance field in the UAE given the regulatory reforms and increased social awareness about its importance, indicating that the health insurance market, which is becoming competitive offers huge opportunities for companies to offer specialized services through a large range of health care products and programs.
He added that Aetna is targeting the health insurance market in the country given the compulsory health insurance programs. And “Aetna Global Benefits” which is part of “Aetna International” is targeting services which are beyond medical treatment insurance. For example it was a pioneer in launching a database allowing policyholders to consult hospitals and physicians from different countries of the world thereby setting an innovative service standard.
