Assembly to review new medical fees

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

The increase in fees of medical services for expats will be reviewed by Parliament as MPs believe that the decision deserved a second look, local media reported.

Although, the minister has the authority to issue such a decision and Parliament has no right to oppose it, many MPs are of the opinion that a legislative-level review maybe helpful in passing a law and chalking out a clear mechanism for fees on Kuwait’s health services.

The daily reported that the parliamentary committee on health will soon hold a meeting to discuss the increase of fees.

Though the committee agrees on the new decision in principle, it objects to the decision to grant exemptions to certain groups from the increase.

The Best solution is Government should stop charging Medical Insurance, instead let people purchase Insurance from Private sector like countries Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, UAE etc. And people will go to private clinics or hospitals as per policy bought by them from private insurance sector.

Changing the whole system at a time creates big problem in the country. The result of this will be people don't go to the hospital because they can't afford the treatment cost. Its going to affect the health atmospheric situation of Kuwait. People carried out their diseases with out proper medication and that will transfer to many others. Majority of the expats are working on a monthly income of 200KD or less and the proposed charges they can't bear. Now they will start treat them self with out going to hospital as the cost they can't bear. Another problem in the accident or emergency cases. The new rates for operation is so high and no body can't afford it and if a situation or decision comes, pay first and then treatment, from where we make money. As Jos said initial admission charges increases are ok, even though many can't afford. But remaining all charges they should cancel.
