DMCC launches exclusive health insurance solution for all Free Zone members

DUBAI: DMCC, the global gateway for commodity trade and enterprise in Dubai and the region, in conjunction with Insure Direct (Brokers) LLC, a Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group company, and the National Health Insurance Company – Daman, today launched an exclusive health insurance solution for all DMCC’s Free Zone member companies.

Gautam Sashittal, Chief Executive Officer, DMCC, commented, “A key element of DMCC’s long-term Free Zone strategy is our commitment to provide member companies with the products and services they require to innovate, grow and succeed here in Dubai.” “We are pleased to announce that the DMCC Free Zone is able to offer all members – whether a startup, SME or large corporation – in collaboration with Insure Direct (Brokers) LLC and Daman, access to an exclusive health insurance solution usually only available to large corporates. There are several packages to choose from with some benefits included such as pre-existing conditions coverage and fixed premiums for all age categories,” added Krysta Fox, Director of Free Zone, DMCC.

Providing this exclusive health insurance solution for its member companies has been high on the DMCC’s agenda, especially as the new Emirate-wide health strategy governed by the Dubai Health Authority is set to take effect next month.

The health insurance solution has been tailor-made exclusively for DMCC’s members so that startups and SMEs can take advantage of world-class insurance solutions and comprehensive benefits that are usually only available to large corporates.
