Default Good Health Insurance in DUBAI or UAE

My husband just set up his own business in Dubai and left his old job. So we are looking for the best health insurance out here to get covered immediately. Would anyone like to share their experience with their own insurance companies and whether or not u are satisfied with what you have.
We are looking at Damman, BUPA, Good health etc... but there are so many and we are confused. Someone at a hospital mentioned Saudi American. We want dental and maternity included as well.
Please do post ur suggestions.

Thanks and Happy new year to all !

The best plan on the market, in my opinion, is the Aetna Expatriate Insurance package. Call their local office and ask about it. My family has it and we have dental, eye care, maternity, etc. with decent deductibles and high limits. Mind you, we pay a decent price for it. cheap and good insurance are not connected.

Hi guys, I'm also looking for good health insurance that will cover a pre-existing condition - I understand that this will be expensive but really can't risk not having cover in place. If anyone has had any experience of this I'd really appreciate any info/guidance.

I will be getting some cover through my hubbies employer but they don't cover any pre-existing conditions.

Truthseekerland - I hope you manage to find the info you are looking for.

Only other one I've heard of not mentioned already (and the premium depends on what the pre-existing condition is) is ADNIC.

Iain, thanks for the info I will definitely check them out. Bit worried about the 9 month wait though as I usually have checkups etc every 4-6 months. Cheers

I am afraid that is what we have to content with here, have a chat with them.. again would depend on what the pre-existing condition is but full disclosure is always best policy.
