Ministry to announce expat health fees increase today



Latest News

Kuwait is expected to announce the new list for prices of health services offered to expatriates in Kuwait today, local daily reported.

Health Minister Dr Jamal Al-Harbi defended the upcoming increases by saying that they are ‘long overdue’ and reiterated that the fees will still be less by 20 compared the private sector for certain lab tests, x-rays and other services. “The project to increase fees of health services offered to expatriates, including residents and visitors, come after a very long time in which the currently nominal fees have not been subjected to any revisions,” the minister said. “Yet, those fees continue to be heavily costly for the state.”

I wish the govt would explain why they collect Medical insurance from all the expatriates and still charge for lab tests and other services. I guess it would be better to scrap the Govt Insurance and ask the companies to provide private medical insurance for all the staff and their families.
