The Insurance Federation of Egypt recommended maintaining the role of private insurance companies in collaboration with the public sector in the national health insurance program. This was stated in the electronic newsletter of the federation issued on Wednesday. Therefore, the Insurance Federation of Egypt advocated the Health Insurance Authority to enter into contracts with insurance companies in order to cover specific sectors or regions or categories of society.
The Federation said that the employer should be allowed to sign contracts with insurance companies that will grant them exemptions from contributions in the national comprehensive insurance program.
