SICOM and OracleMed Health join forces to launch international medical insurance plan


SICOM Group has announced a new partnership with OracleMed Health, a global medical insurance company, to offer a comprehensive international medical insurance plan. This plan aims to provide residents of Mauritius and beyond with greater access to high-quality healthcare services worldwide.

The new plan boasts access to a vast network exceeding 3,000 hospitals across the globe.  This ensures policyholders benefit from a personalized approach to healthcare, with coverage tailored to their specific needs.

Unmatched Coverage and Support

SICOM Group, in partnership with OracleMed Health, offers comprehensive medical coverage of up to 1 million US dollars. This coverage ensures policyholders access to a network of globally accredited medical providers in the event of medical emergencies. Additionally, it provides the option for seeking advanced medical treatment abroad when needed.

OracleMed Health, specialists in international healthcare insurance, will guide policyholders towards destinations offering the most suitable medical care for their specific situation.  The plan goes beyond medical costs, fully covering transportation, hospitalization, and accommodation for both the policyholder and one accompanying person.

24/7 Support and Flexible Options

An additional benefit is the 24/7 telephone assistance service.  Through a dedicated call centre, policyholders can connect directly with reputable doctors or related services.

Understanding the diverse needs of its clientele, SICOM has designed the plan with flexible geographical coverage options. A premium tier offers worldwide coverage, excluding the United States and Canada.  Alternatively, policyholders can choose from Africa-specific or Asia-specific plans.

“This new offering underscores our dedication to adapting our insurance products to the evolving needs of our clients,” said Kiran Ancharaz, Senior Executive Officer of SICOM General Insurance Ltd. “The partnership with OracleMed Health elevates the standards of healthcare accessibility for our policyholders by granting them access to the best healthcare providers globally.”
