Monday, 04 27 2020, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Saudi Arabia
The Council of Cooperative Health Insurance has stated that the Consolidated Health Insurance Policy covers child vaccinations through home medical care for 90 days as a precautionary measure amid the coronavirus outbreak.
Qualified health insurance companies and accredited health care providers have been told to put the order into effect and service providers were urged to survey individuals failing to do the required vaccinations and tell them to get the necessary children’s vaccinations approved by the Ministry of Health.
“The Council has set several criteria that must be adhered to. Qualified health insurance companies are obliged to provide child vaccination service through council-accredited service providers within the medical network of the insured,” said the council’s spokesperson, Yasser Al-Maarek.
Service providers must also comply with patient safety and infection control standards and procedures approved by the relevant regulatory authorities, the spokesperson said.
