This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UAE is to introduce an obligatory health insurance scheme for companies that employ and recruit foreign citizens. The scheme will be introduced on three levels, with the first being general health insurance at a cost of Dh850 ($231), and it is expected to be in place within six months. The second level will cover hospitalisation, at a cost of between Dh1,500-2,000 and the third will be optional and cover plastic surgery and dental care, reports the Kuwait Times. Health minister Dr Hassan Ahmad Al-Alkim said: "The health insurance project will be a major step in serving the patient as the ministry will focus on providing quality services so as to compete with private hospitals." Dr Hassan also revealed that the healthcare budget this year will be the same as in 2001, Dh1.6 billion.
