Dubai Islamic Insurance and Reinsurance Company (Aman) has launched two new medical products in partnership with India's ICICI Lombard General Insurance through the courtesy of insurance and reinsurance broker JB Boda & Co.

The medical insurance products, Rishtey and Health on Return, are aimed at non-resident Indians (NRI) in the UAE and the region.

According to the Aman, the Rishtey offers comprehensive health insurance for families in India.

The Heath on Return product will cover NRI health needs when they visit India and also serves as a retirement health insurance policy when they decide to move home permanently.

Aman CEO and managing director Hussein Al Meeza said the NRI segment of the market is increasing in volume. At the same time, there is greater awareness of the benefits of health insurance and the importance of planning ahead.
