Expats living in Kuwait can now ensure complete care for their dependents and family members living back home in India through attractive discount’s (ranging between 10% to 50%) on health checks, medical expenses and professional services like Home Care and Dial-a-Doctor services.

As this card is very useful for the expatriate Indians living in Kuwait, we met the Senior Manager – Al Mulla Insurance Brokerage Company WLL, Mr Deepak Bhatia to find out more the card and how the expats can get benefited from this.

IIK: Is this product a Mediclaim or a Health Insurance Plan?

Membership to this plan promises concessional benefits across Indian Health Organization’s (IHO) vast network of over 13,000 medical experts & service providers present in more than 27 cities across India. The services enable members to substantially downsize expenses incurred on a health check, doctor or hospital visits (treatment, consultation charges) dental treatments & consultations as well as diagnostics (lab test requirements).

IIK: Who all can sign up for this card?
DB: Only expat Indians residing in Kuwait can sign up for the card. We need the Civil ID details only for the Primary Card Holder. The rest of the beneficiaries/members proposed may reside in Kuwait or India but the cards can be utilized ONLY in India. There are no other entry barriers in terms of age limit or prior medical checkup.

IIK: How does the family in India benefit from Day 1 if the physical Discount Cards are with the Member in Kuwait?
DB: A member can scan and email the Discount Cards to his family in India so they can avail instant benefits on Medical Bills from Day 1.

IIK: What is the price of this Health Discount Card?
