Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Al Ain Ahlia Insurance Company today announced the addition of several new benefits, as standard, to Focus its health plan for the UAE SME sector, offered in partnership with Aetna International that include coverage for mental health, emergency treatment outside the area of cover, and organ transplant. The latest round of enhancements are offered as part of Al Ain Ahlia Insurance Company and Aetna International’s wider commitments to addressing the growing physical and mental health challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. The additions to Focus follow recent upgrades made to Al Ain Ahlia and Aetna’s Pioneer and Summit plans that were announced in January this year.
Focus was launched in early 2020 based on an in-depth survey of UAE-based SMEs. Responses revealed that a tighter fit to business needs, together with support services, availability of wellness and healthy-living programs and favorable cost-benefit ratio, were important criteria when selecting health insurance plans.
The plan is targeted at organizations employing less than 100 people and offers four variants of cover Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and a host of benefits, including full payment for cancer care, and free access to Aetna International’s virtual-healthcare service, vHealth. All these options are offered with rapid quote-turnaround times, a single point of contact, and transparent reporting. Only in the first six months of service, Focus met more than two-thirds of the premium target and since launch, it has also seen healthy renewal rates a strong indicator of the high value seen in the health plan by employers in the SME market.
