The pains of medical patients are endless and they suffer continuously. Moreover, the cost of their treatment is huge bearing in mind that certain services are not covered by health insurance. Therefore, these patients face difficult decisions outside the scope of insurance especially those who suffer from cancer, thalassemia, handicaps and psychiatric cases.
All individuals are exposed to risks and the cost of treatment is very high. The uninsured medical case will cause significant financial risks as many patients will lose all their savings along the process. According to the figures of “Zurich International Life” more than three quarters of the citizens of the UAE (76 percent) dot not have sufficient insurance coverage and 85% of women are not covered against dangerous diseases.
