Our Advices

To deliver on your duty of making a fair presentation of the risk to insurers containing all material circumstances which you know or ought to have known.

If you are in doubt as to whether information is material, it is best to disclose it since rarely disclosure will prejudice you, whereas non-disclosure certainly will.

Disclosure to include:

  • Loss history
  • Date of birth, occupation, gender, nationality, etc.
  • Any material fact

material fact is one that is likely to influence the judgment of an insurer when determining whether to provide a business with cover and at what premium.

For the medical insurance of your company staff, you should refuse any pre-existing exclusion.

The HR department should only intervene for escalation with Your insurance broker and not on daily basis.

To assess the reliability of your health insurance provider by checking its track records.

To favor insurers (or their TPA) who have an extensive direct billing network where the insured does not have to pay from his/her pocket through a “Cashless facility” at hospital

To fight abuses, keep in mind that if claims take the escalator, premiums will take the lift at renewal. Costs have to be contained!


Is it a good option to have two policies, one for Iraqi nationals and another one for expats? Yes, since location of treatment is different.
