Qatar Life and Medical Insurance Company (QLM), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qatar Insurance Company, has expanded its network of medical service providers in Russia, which is the host of this year’s FIFA World Cup.
The QLM medical network will cover all the cities where the World Cup matches will be held, such as Moscow, St Petersburg, Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod. The network includes about 700 service providers within Russia for QLM customers to enjoy directly services in this network, which includes the largest hospitals.
The expansion in Russia is deemed an important addition to the current network owned by QLM. This is the largest global network of medical service providers including major hospitals, medical clinics, diagnostic centres, laboratories, radiotherapy facilities, pharmacies, physiotherapy centres, dental centres and optical clinics.
“The World Cup 2022 in Qatar is a historic event and inspired by the passion of Qatar towards sports,” Salem Khalaf al-Mannai, deputy group president and chief executive of Qatar Insurance Group, said.
This prompted QLM to ensure the provision of a network of medical services providers of the highest quality and efficiency and geographical spread, thus ensuring the provision of healthcare services across the globe, he said.
“The company’s strategy for the future is to reach its objectives of global expansion and to enter into new markets. From this point of view, the company is entering into direct contracts with service providers worldwide as one of the steps to be announced soon,” he said.
The Qatari market, he said, has become a global market in which all segments from around the world are present and this is a motivation to continue to develop and provide global services that suit these segments and their aspirations. “QLM is pursuing the QIC’s approach in the planned growth of the group in world markets. The group’s presence and spread globally paves the way for QLM to spread through the companies and QIC’s branches,” according to him.
Ahmed Mohamed Zebeib, a senior executive of QLM, said the company is always proactive and keen to provide the most comprehensive service to its customers.
“The company has achieved a qualitative leap which is evidenced by the size of its customer base at the local level or at the regional level. To keep pace with this growing growth, the company has relied on modern technologies in providing its services,” he said.
Competition is not only in the implementation of companies or institutions to provide a medical insurance for their employees, but also in the quality of technology and technological services provided by the medical insurance companies to the client, he added.
