UAE – Hospitals reject covered treatment
Tuesday, 11 21 2017, Category: Health, Country: U.A.E
Sponsors of employees said that they are unable to treat employees even though they are enrolled in the basic health insurance because hospitals refuse to offer treatment despite the fact that health providers are part of the insurance network.
Moreover, Dr Haidar Al Yousuf, Director of Health funding in Dubai Health Authority said that approximately 90% of complaints of the persons covered by the basic health insurance package are related to their ignorance about the nature of the package or the direct visits to hospitals without going through the family clinics. He indicated that the Authority treats 200 complaints on a monthly basis. Such complaints are related to the ignorance of customers, insurers that do not honor their obligations, or the unnecessary treatments imposed by hospitals.
