Sukoon, formerly Oman Insurance Company, one of the leading insurance providers in the UAE, in continuation of its partnership with Aster DM Healthcare, has announced the launch of two new health insurance plans designed to meet the needs of large to mid-sized corporates as well as individuals.
Affordability and accessibility often pose a barrier to corporate employees and individuals taking positive steps to improve their physical well-being. To address this, Sukoon and Aster DM Healthcare have launched two innovative healthcare plans to offer access to a wider network. The two new health insurance plans, ‘Shield Saver’ and ‘Shield Saver Plus’ have been designed with customer convenience and accessibility in mind. Both plans feature access to a wider network, tapping into Aster DM Healthcare’s strong geographical presence.
In addition to this, members will have access to 24/7 virtual care with 0% co-pay on GP consultations, lab reports, radiology, and prescribed medicines through the myAster mobile app. The plans also offer a reduced co-payment to customers when they visit preferred medical providers. As an added benefit, customers will receive substantial cash discounts across a range of elective procedures not covered in their plans. This also includes discounts at Aster Pharmacy and Aster Optical retail outlets across the UAE.
Commenting on the partnership, Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare, said, “Last year Aster DM Healthcare partnered with Sukoon to work towards catering to the healthcare needs of our customers and ensuring hassle-free quality care. We have taken this collaboration one step further with two new plans that have been designed to provide affordable insurance with innovative access to technology-backed healthcare through the use of our myAster app. With these plans, the policy holders will have access to a wide range of features such as virtual consultations coupled with financial benefits like 0% co-pay. This collaboration builds on our company's commitment to delivering clinical expertise and unparalleled services at a competitive price.”
Jean-Louis Laurent Josi, Chief Executive Officer at Sukoon, said “Our partnership with Aster continues to not only benefit our customers, but also creates a unique proposition as an alternative to existing medical coverages available in the market. The newly launched medical plans in collaboration with Aster, will provide affordable, state-of-the-art coverage to our customers while offering network choices and additional benefits. That, coupled with our award-winning service, will further strengthen our position as an insurer of choice in the region.”
The new health insurance plans are expected to provide comprehensive coverage and significant savings for all plan members allowing them to access high-quality healthcare at an affordable cost.
