The doctor’s syndicate is concerned about the proposed health insurance bill and is currently reviewing it ahead of the parliamentary ratification.
“An official statement outlining its advantages and disadvantages will be issued within a couple of days,” the syndicate’s chief Ihab Al-Taher told Daily News Egypt on Thursday.
On Wednesday, the health ministry met with different syndicate representatives to discuss the bill. In a statement regarding the meeting, Minister of Health Ahmed Emad El-Din called the health insurance bill “ one of the most important merits for Egypt’s constitution in terms of providing medical treatment with high quality and zero suffering and hence achieving social justice.”
