Monday, 02 05 2018, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Saudi Arabia
The official spokesperson for Saudi Arabia’s Cooperative Health Insurance Council, Yaser Almuarik has announced health insurance policies sold by health insurance companies under the C name are for marketing purposes only and are not recognised by the insurance system. He added the system does not permit insurance companies to issue policies with benefits which are less than those in the unified policy recognised by the Council. Companies should issue policies which offer the same services offered by the unified policy and if the service is not available in a certain hospital the patient should be referred to another hospital.
