Health Insurance in Dubai

Clyde & Co, a leading international law firm in the Middle East, estimates that new compulsory health insurance schemes for expatriates and their dependents could conservatively cost employers up to AED 4 billion across the UAE, and over AED 1.5 billion in Dubai alone, assuming a similar compulsory health insurance scheme to that in Abu Dhabi is introduced in Dubai.

A new scheme was introduced in Abu Dhabi from January 2007.
