Making access to healthcare, simpler, easier and safer
Are you an expat based in or moving to Kuwait?
Our health insurance plans for expatriates in Kuwait were designed for people who spend long periods in Kuwait and overseas. It works much like health insurance at home: you’re not just covered for emergency treatment, but also for your diagnosis and post-treatment care.
Our Core Plans are flexible, affordable and comprehensive, covering in-patient and day-care treatments at home and abroad. Our plans also include treatment for covid-19, subject to terms and conditions.
Your cover is also subject to:
Policy definitions and exclusions
Any special conditions shown on your Insurance Certificate (and on the Special Condition Form issued before the policy comes into effect, where relevant).
Any policy endorsements, policy terms and conditions and any other legal requirements.
Costs being reasonable and customary in accordance with country of treatment, standard and generally accepted medical procedures. If we consider a claim to be inappropriate, we reserve the right to decline or reduce the amount we pay.
Cover is not provided if any element of the cover, benefit, activity, business or underlying business violates any applicable sanction law or regulations of the United Nations, the European Union or any other applicable economic or trade sanction law or regulations.
Please check your Insurance Certificate, Benefit Guide and Table of Benefits to find out more. Cover in some countries is subject to local health insurance restrictions, particularly for residents of that country. It is your responsibility to ensure that your health cover is legally appropriate.If you are not sure, please get independent legal advice, as we may no longer be able to cover you.

Find the answers to our most commonly asked questions about the nature of our cover and how we protect members globally.
This is the geographical territory where your cover is valid. We offer multiple geographical area of cover options – please check your Insurance Certificate to confirm which one applies to you.
For example, if your area of cover is “Worldwide”, this means that your cover will be valid everywhere* in the world. If your area of cover is “Africa”, then your cover will be valid everywhere in Africa.
*Our policies don’t provide any cover or benefit for any business or activity to the extent that either the cover or benefit or the underlying business or activity would violate any applicable sanction law or regulations of the United Nations, the European Union or any other applicable economic or trade sanction law or regulations. The areas of cover are subject to your policy terms and conditions.
We generally cover pre-existing conditions (including pre-existing chronic conditions), unless we say otherwise in writing before policy inception. If your underwriting terms are moratorium or CPME/CTT (previously MORI), there will be a 24 month waiting period before claims for any pre-existing medical conditions may become eligible. Once you’ve completed a continuous 24-month period after your start date, your pre-existing medical condition may be covered, provided that you’ve not had symptoms, needed or received treatment, medication, a special diet or advice, or had any other indications of the condition.
For further information, please contact our Sales team.
Moratorium underwriting sets a waiting period for pre-existing medical conditions to limit the insurance risk. This means that:
You won't need to tell us about pre-existing conditions of any member to be covered when you apply.
There will be a 24-month waiting period before claims for any pre-existing medical conditions will become eligible.
Pre-existing medical conditions may be covered, provided the member did not have symptoms, needed or received treatment, medication, a special diet or advice, or had any other indications of the condition. This is suitable for individuals or groups where members have no pre-existing conditions.
Claims Process may be longer as each time we receive a claim, we'll look at the member medical history. We may also ask for additional information to understand if the symptom or condition is new or pre-existing.
This option is available to individuals or groups with 3 to 9 policies
Availability of Moratorium Underwriting is dependent on geographical location and the relevant local country regulations in place.
Full medical underwriting is when we assess the insurance risk before cover starts. This means that:
You’ll be asked to complete a medical questionnaire for each person to be covered, telling us about pre-existing conditions when you apply.
Pre-existing conditions may not be covered (or there may be a surcharge to cover pre-existing conditions). Members will be asked to complete an application form disclosing their medical history before cover starts. Our underwriting team will then assess the information and decide if we are able to offer cover for medical conditions disclosed on the form.
Claims process is shorter because we already know if pre-existing conditions are covered.
This option is available to individuals or groups with 3 to 9 policies.
This means that we will cover you on an emergency basis if you are on a short term visit outside your region of cover. For example, if you are on holiday in the USA, but have purchased a Worldwide Excluding USA plan - There is cover for emergencies in the USA for a maximum of 42 days (for trips of a maximum period of six weeks – unlimited number of trips). Please see our Benefit Guide and Table of Benefits for general terms & conditions.
Most of our contracts are for one year – but we have a short-term plan to suit members who need international health insurance for less than a year.
For all products, there is a 30 day cooling off period from the start date. After this, the policy may not be cancelled until renewal, regardless of whether a monthly or annual payment frequency is chosen. For more information please contact our dedicated sales team on +353 1 514 8480.
In-patient cover relates to all treatment which occurs when a member is an "in-patient" (staying overnight/for a period of time) in the hospital. Out-patient claims (such as doctor visits, buying prescription drugs) would only be covered if an out-patient plan was bought together with the in-patient one. We have a range of different levels of cover for both in-patient and out-patient treatment.
