Area Guides, Living in Dubai

In Dubai, you don’t need to register with a specific GP; you can make an appointment at any clinic in the city. This means you can try a few different doctors before settling on one you’re most comfortable with. Remember to take with you proof of your medical insurance (and your health card if visiting a government healthcare provider). Most clinics and hospitals will have a consultation charge in addition to the doctor’s charge. Depending on your insurance cover, you may have to pay about 15 percent of the consultation fee or none at all. Some clinics do not bill directly to the insurance company and you will have to pay for the treatment, get a copy of the bill and file a claim with your insurance provider. Also note that some private clinics don’t have agreements with all insurance companies, so you may be sent away depending on your provider. To find out more about private healthcare clinics, contact Dubai Health Care City (; 800 432 584).
