Aetna expands ME health plan options
Dubai, August 2, 2010
Aetna, a leading global diversified health care benefits company based in the US, has expanded its Middle East health plan options with the introduction of affordable, high-quality plan offering additional flexibility in cover.
Aetna said it has expanded its regional healthcare plan (RHP) for companies in need of health care cover for their expatriate employees living across the region through Aetna Global Benefits (AGB), its international business segment.
Two RHP plans are now available – RHP Lifestyle Plus and the new RHP Lifestyle plan – which have different levels of cover and benefits. The plans complement AGB’s portfolio of products for individuals and groups of all sizes, it added.
“We are extremely pleased to offer an additional medical plan for customers in the region that provides high-quality cover for a range of budgets," said Mark Jardin, AGB managing director in the Middle East and Africa.
"We’re committed to providing employers with choices of cost-effective benefits plans and options that can be tailored to bring real value to their investment in employee benefits," he added.
In addition to cover for both hospital stays and out-patient treatment, the regional healthcare plan features benefits not normally found under a local health care plan, Jardin said.
Aetna is a leading global diversified health care benefits company headquartered in the US serving approximately 35.8 million people with information and resources to help them make better informed decisions about their health care.
It offers a broad range of health insurance products and related services, including medical, pharmacy, dental, behavioural health, group life and disability plans, and medical management capabilities and health care management services for Medicaid plans.-TradeArabia News Service
