The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) plans to substitute the National ID card for the insurance card for all residents by end of 2016, a senior official said.
Dr Haidar Al Yousuf, Director of health funding at DHA, told Gulf News the transition will happen throughout 2016. “As of now only National Identity cards for Emiratis under Sa’ada and Enaya can be electronically read for insurance cover. This year all residents will have this facility extended to them. We are asking insurance companies to comply.”
