Health insurance provides you with a safety net against unexpected medical expenses, including costs related to hospitalization, medications, or doctor visits.

Health insurance offers several advantages:

  • Budget Planning: You can plan your finances better by knowing your upfront costs at the beginning of the year
  • Access negotiated rates for medical expenses
  • Benefit from claims management assistance
  • Ensure insured individuals receive necessary treatment promptly, aiding in a speedy recovery
     

It's crucial to thoroughly review and comprehend the benefits and exclusions outlined in the plan you choose, as coverage can vary. Typically, treatments that go beyond your plan's benefits are excluded. Services that are not medically necessary, such as cosmetic procedures, fertility investigations & treatments and supplements are also excluded. Conditions related to 'self-harm,' including suicide attempts, hazardous pursuits, experimental treatments and drug or alcohol-related conditions are not covered.

Additionally, some plans may require you to disclose pre-existing conditions. Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of these conditions and any related ones. If you have any uncertainties, please provide us with the specifics of your situation and we can offer guidance.

This way, we can provide you with a clear understanding of how we would handle your situation, enabling you to make an informed decision.

In Abu Dhabi, this requirement also extends to cover spouses and up to three dependent children up to the age of 18.

It is crucial to have a clear understanding of your legal responsibilities in compliance with these laws. Our staff members are well-versed in the various intricacies and can provide you with the necessary guidance.

When policy refunds may be processed
Policy refunds can be initiated solely by the policyholder(s) and are strictly governed by the terms and conditions outlined in your policy concerning cancellations and refunds. Additionally, policy refunds are subject to no outstanding premiums on the client account with GIG Gulf.

In exceptional cases, subject to approval, refunds may be directed to a third party with the authorization of the policyholder, which is conveyed to GIG Gulf. In such instances, GIG Gulf will require the completion of a Bank Transfer Details Form from the third party. This form enables GIG Gulf to conduct compliance checks on the third party before initiating the transfer. Payments to third parties will only be executed after successful compliance clearances.

• For direct billing claims: GIG Gulf will settle payments directly with the healthcare service providers who rendered services to our clients and members.

• For reimbursement claims: Eligible reimbursement claims will be processed by GIG Gulf and settled directly with the respective member(s) after submitting the required valid claim documents, as outlined on our reimbursement portal, and subsequent adjudication and approval by the GIG claims team.

GIG Gulf does not hold the liability to reimburse the client for any portion or the entirety of these taxes/fees that are payable by the client.

Outpatient Maternity coverage encompasses consultations, tests, treatments, and pharmacy expenses. The application of Co-Insurance will be applied as per your policy benefits. It's important to refer to your Table of Benefits (TOB) as this coverage can vary by region and is subject to regulatory requirements.

The extent of coverage will be in line with both local regulations and international medical guidelines, and it's worth noting that a waiting period may be applicable in accordance with your TOB. If you seek Outpatient services outside the GCC region, they will be evaluated on a reimbursement basis.

To determine whether your policy includes maternity coverage, you can refer to the "Maternity Benefit: Pregnancy and Childbirth" section within your table of benefits. For guidance on accessing your table of benefits and understanding the benefits provided by your policy, please review the response to the question, "What benefits does my policy provide, and where can I download my table of benefits?"

Inpatient Maternity coverage encompasses the expenses associated with the delivery of your baby, whether it's a normal delivery or a medically necessary C-section. Additionally, this benefit also covers medically necessary legal abortions.

To modify your payment details for reimbursement claims, you can make the necessary changes through the MyGIG Gulf Mobile App when submitting your claim.

When an employee health insurance plan includes co-insurance, members may be required to contribute a specific percentage of the treatment cost. The exact percentage hinges on two key factors:
• The co-insurance percentage specified for all Outpatient services, as indicated on the health insurance digital or physical card.
• Whether a member sought care from an In-Network Provider under a Direct Billing arrangement or from an Out-of-Network Provider, where they paid upfront and later sought reimbursement, in the case of an emergency.
In contrast, a co-pay or deductible refers to a fixed amount  individuals must pay when they visit a doctor for a consultation. The specific amount is detailed on their medical card. It's important to note that the "co-pay" should not be charged for follow-up visits within 7 calendar days if the visit is related to the same condition and involves the same doctor.

For more comprehensive information about the particulars of your medical insurance plan, including any additional applicable co-insurances, it's advisable to consult your insurance provider directly.

Outpatient: An outpatient refers to a patient who does not stay overnight in a hospital but instead visits a hospital, clinic, or related facility for diagnosis or treatment and is subsequently sent home after the consultation.
Daycare: Daycare pertains to a patient or case that enters a hospital for a medical treatment or surgical procedure and is managed and discharged within a single day. This falls under the category of outpatient care.
Inpatient: An inpatient denotes an insured member who is formally admitted as a bed patient in a hospital. They incur daily room and board charges, and the stay typically spans a minimum duration of 24 hours.

To assist you in determining the most appropriate health insurance plan for your needs, it is essential to consider the following factors:
• Your budget: Evaluate what you can afford and your willingness to contribute to co-insurance at the time of a claim.
• Your requirements: Determine if you need specific features, such as cashless billing at certain facilities, coverage in particular countries, specific treatments like dental or maternity benefits, coverage for pre-existing conditions, essential services like teleconsultation, online claims submission, or well-being support.
• Your values: Decide if it's crucial for you to choose an insurer known for providing fair, prompt, and reliable service.
Take your time to research thoroughly, as switching insurers can potentially affect what is considered a pre-existing condition. Making the wrong choice could lead to a disruption in coverage when you need it most.

It's crucial to thoroughly review and comprehend the benefits and exclusions outlined in the plan you choose, as coverage can vary. Typically, treatments that go beyond your plan's benefits are excluded. Services that are not medically necessary, such as cosmetic procedures, fertility investigations & treatments and supplements are also excluded. Conditions related to 'self-harm,' including suicide attempts, hazardous pursuits, experimental treatments and drug or alcohol-related conditions are not covered.

Additionally, some plans may require you to disclose pre-existing conditions. Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of these conditions and any related ones. If you have any uncertainties, please provide us with the specifics of your situation and we can offer guidance.

Please communicate the transfer details along with the policy/Invoice details to regional.creditcontrol@gig-gulf.com and the respective GIG Key Account Manager supporting your policy request.
