Kuwait – Health insurance for retirees: KD 100 million project
Monday, 04 04 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Kuwait
With the start of the fourth month of the current year, 107 thousand retired citizens are waiting eagerly for the implementation of the health insurance project for retirees, which has been delayed for a long time. Many statements were made over more than one year by officials of the ministry of health about its expected implementation. However, there are no signs of practical step being taken for implementation or organizing medical centers anticipated by the law in order to end the problems of the citizens covered by the mentioned law despite choosing the company through a tender offer recently.
The project has a cost of KD 100 million which is financed by the Treasury. Until now the details of its implementation are not clear with no official launching date. The network of hospitals has not been set and there are still questions about the rationale for spending this amount on an unclear project.
