Paris, France, May 31, 2021 - UTA Assistance’s long-established relationship with the International Assistance Group will now encompass the seven federated emirates of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Stepping up to Assistance Partner status for Jordan in 2019 after many years as a correspondent, UTA has now built an impressive footprint in the UAE, offering the full range of medical assistance services from their dedicated 24/7 alarm centre in Dubai.

Cost containment is an integral part of their services. UTA minimises costs without compromising quality and they achieve this through know-how, experience and direct negotiations with service providers. They stay ahead of the curve by delivering dramatic cost savings on both professional fees and hospital charges.

With over 30 years of regional experience in providing full medical assistance, UTA built up solid working relationships with government and private medical facilities across the UAE. This ensures that common problems with Guarantee of Payments are now easily overcome, and preferential terms often applied.

UTA is noted for its informed and hands-on approach to travel and medical insurers and the assistance industry. In addition to dealing with medical facilities, medical escorts can be provided for commercial airlines, stretchers arranged on selected carriers, regional air ambulance specialists called upon and a wide range of travel assistance services delivered by a well-established network of contacts.
