International Medical Group, Inc. (IMG), Indianapolis, has announced the launch of MediGlobal Health Insurance, an international health care plan which meets the local requirements of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and offers flexible options catering to the insurance requirements for the entire U.A.E. This innovative product provides a rich blend of benefits offering worldwide coverage on a direct billing basis. IMG joined hands with the U.A.E.-based company Al Wathba National Insurance Company P.S.C. (AWNIC), one of the leading insurance companies in the U.A.E.

“We have worked very closely with AWNIC to deliver effective local and international coverage within one seamless plan specially designed for the U.A.E. market,” said Joseph Brougher, President of IMG. “We are particularly pleased to be partnering with an insurance company like AWNIC that provides such strong security and consistently delivers on its promise of superior coverage and customer service.”

“Our review of the U.A.E. health insurance sector showed that the market was lacking a product that could effectively combine local underwriting and service with international coverage and emergency services,” added Mr. Bassam Chilmeran, General Manager of AWNIC. “After an extensive review of the companies operating in the international market, we found that IMG stood above the market with its superior international service and global reputation.”

On May 21, 2008, Mr. Bassam Chilmeran welcomed insurance brokers along with members of prestigious organizations from different sectors of the market to the official launching of this breakthrough product at the Hilton in Abu Dhabi. During the event, IMG executives gave a detailed presentation on the salient features of the new plan. Both IMG and AWNIC conveyed the message that MediGlobal Health Insurance is a high-end product which is the perfect solution for the need of the present day Emirate clientele.
