Medical Provider Locator
Searching for your preferred healthcare provider is just a click away!
In a step that reinforces its market leadership and competitive advantages in the insurance sector across the Middle East, AXA Gulf – one of the top five insurers in the GCC – today announced the launch of its online medical provider locator service in the region, making it possible for customers to locate a provider from the convenience of their computer or smart phones.
The new AXA locator, found on www.axa-gulf.com comes with best-in-class features that enables customers to find the list of preferred providers in real time across UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait, Middle East & Africa and US, offering them not only a quick and easy access to the medical provider network but also catering to their special healthcare requirements at that point in time.
The system is hugely beneficial as customers no longer have to depend on paper-based provider lists, with the Google maps providing the perfect geographic location to help identify the nearest provider. The customers can search for providers along various set criteria, including country, city, type of hospital/ clinic, specialty and/ or their names.
