Doha: Sidra Medicine, the specialist women’s and children’s hospital has signed its first insurance partner in an agreement with Al Koot Insurance and Reinsurance Company, a leader in health insurance in Qatar.

The agreement will provide Al Koot’s client base of residents in Qatar access to Sidra Medicine’s private medical services as part of their preferred provider network. For pediatric patients, this includes access to Sidra Medicine’s world-class specialized children’s services and multidisciplinary teams across pediatric cardiology, neurology, urology and plastics and craniofacial reconstruction. Sidra Medicine also offers obstetrics and gynecology services for women and treats and cares for pregnant women with fetal complications.

The deal marks an important step for Sidra Medicine only two months since its official grand opening in November 2018 as it clinches an agreement with a leading healthcare insurance provider in the country.

Commenting on the signing, Mr. Peter Morris, CEO of Sidra Medicine, said: “I am absolutely delighted that we are working Al Koot and we look forward to caring for Al Koot’s

members. As a Qatar Foundation entity, it is only fitting that our first agreement is with a leading health insurance provider based in this country which works with some of the top Qatari organizations. We are excited for further announcements in the near future.”

Mr. Ahmed Rafee Al-Emadi, CEO of Al Koot Insurance and Reinsurance Company, commented: “We are glad to have this agreement with Sidra Medicine as a Qatari world-class scientific organization. This partnership will make a significant difference to our insured members who need specialized care. Previously many patients had to travel abroad for specialist pediatric treatments, but the addition of Sidra Medicine as one of our care providers means that they have access to world-class care on their doorstep. It is a real testament to Qatar’s pioneering spirit and sustained commitment to its human and social development.”

Al Koot Insurance and Reinsurance Company’s partnership with Sidra Medicine for its existing clients who live in Qatar means that they now have direct billing access for Sidra Medicine services not considered public, which includes maternity.
