Emirates ID may now be used to claim health insurance

People covered by the national insurer Daman will soon be able to use their Emirates ID card for healthcare services.

Daman is merging customer data with that stored on Emirates ID cards, a process that will be completed next year but is already being provided to customers as their data is merged, reported The National.

Those not yet able to use their ID for health care can replace their Daman cards with online services after registering on the company’s mobile app, the report said.

The new ID card system began after a pilot phase in which medical centres processed 4,000 transactions a day, it added.

“Daman, in collaboration with Emirates ID, had already distributed about 2,000 ID card-reading devices to accredited healthcare outlets, allowing them to capture ID information on their systems,” Hamad Al Mehays, chief executive for operations at the insurer, reportedly said. “This step supports the Government’s smart services initiative and expedites processing time for customers.”

Fifty per cent of Daman claims are now reviewed and adjudicated automatically, said the news portal.

For the first six months of this year the insurer had an average of 2.8 million claims a month, it said.

Card readers scan a patient’s details and send it to Daman’s servers, which identify the member’s eligibility and show the health centre the benefits under the patient’s policy, the report pointed out, adding that Daman has almost three million members in the UAE.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention plans to expand the number of Seha centres in Abu Dhabi that accept insurance cards and has established an electronic claims system, reported The National.

Daman and Thiqa apps serve as digital insurance cards. Members have access to details of their cover and those of their dependents. They can submit reimbursement claims from their phone and access their direct medical network claims, the report said.
