Monday, 10 28 2019, Category: Insurance and Reinsurance, Country: Oman
A database for the medical insurance scheme (Dhamani) has been launched, according to The Capital Market Authority (CMA).
In a statement yesterday, CMA said: "A database for Dhamani has been launched. This a preparatory step to generalise Dhamani, which is a key pillar for regulating the health insurance market."
The care scheme is based on the provision of health care for private sector employees who were not covered by any scheme previously. As well as encouraging competition in the provision of medical services in the various regions of the Sultanate, it is intended to create a positive investment environment in this field.
It also aims to ensure quality services provided by insurers and health care units and easy access for the insured as well as limiting the costs incurred by employers in the private sector.
