Thursday, 09 08 2016, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Saudi Arabia
The Council of Cooperative Health Insurance is currently developing an electronic system for operations (SHIB) “Saudi Health Insurance Bus”, which aims at strengthening the health insurance industry and raising the quality of service offered to beneficiaries by linking electronically insurance companies and health service providers. Therefore, it will speed up treatment authorization procedures as well as their supervision by making sure insurance companies settle the benefits stipulated in the unified cooperative health insurance contract.
The official spokesman for the council, Mr. Yasser bin Ali Al-Ma'arik said that “completing this system will help control the irregularities that take place in the sector, raise the satisfaction of the insured. These are the goals the council wants to reach in line with Vision 2030 of the Kingdom”.
