Ahmed Al Mamari, the head of the health insurance team said: "The health insurance rules of the Dhamani project are in the final discussion stages at the Ministry of Legal Affairs. This includes the legislative framework that regulates the relationship between the concerned parties represented by the employer, the worker, insurance and health institutions and the claim management company.
