The UAE has a wide-ranging, government-funded and rapidly evolving private healthcare sector delivering high standard of health care to the population. The health insurance policies are an integral part of the healthcare infrastructure as they cover the cost associated with medical and surgical expenses of the policyholders. The costs incurred during the treatment of the patient are either fully paid by the insurance company in advance or indirectly through reimbursement, depending upon pre-decided terms and conditions. An effective health insurance plan includes services such as diagnosis and treatment for illnesses and conditions, psychiatric care, rehabilitation, therapy, emergency transportation, in-patient management, maternity, dental care, etc. AXA Gulf Insurance, Abu Dhabi National Insurance Company (ADNIC), Emirates Insurance Company, Oman Insurance Company, etc. are among the key health insurance providers in the UAE.
With a population of around 9.6 million, the UAE is among the GCC region's fastest growing economy. Moreover, the government is also playing a major role in increasing the penetration of health insurance in the region.

Additionally, both Abu Dhabi and Dubai also mandate employers to provide health insurance coverage to their employees. Moreover, due to the country's increasing economic diversification and continued inward migration, the per capita expenditure on health care services have increased. Other factors such as increasing occurrences of lifestyle diseases and rising costs of medical treatments are also driving the market positively.
