Saudi Arabia's ministry of finance and three other ministries are planning to conclude contracts with specialized companies to provide medical insurance services to their employees.
The ministries of commerce, tourism, and economy and planning are intending to introduce medical insurance for their staff along with the ministry of finance, Al-Watan newspaper said Tuesday quoting informed sources.
The move is nearly nine years after the Health Services Council (HSC) formed a committee to study the issue of applying health insurance to Saudi employees in implementation of the order of the highest authorities that all state employees must be covered by health insurance.
There is also a directive in the order to the ministry of health, the Health Services Council and the Cooperative Health Insurance Council to carry out studies in this regard.
