Worries about Health Insurance Scheme among Expatriates in kuwait

KuwaitExpatriates in will receive treatment in 3 separate hospitals and 15 clinics after paying KD 130 yearly instead of the current KD 50 through the proposed . According to the proposed scheme, families will receive discounts that will cover lab and X-ray examination, as well as medical checkup. Al-Rai daily reported that the financial implications of the health insurance scheme make expatriates worry due to the increase in prices of foodstuffs, fees at the private schools, rent and other miscellaneous expenses.

Although some expatriates called for a system that will allow payment of the KD 130 in installments, few people said they would resort to treatment at the pharmacy if the plan is put to effect. “The only solution is to send his family back to their home country because he couldn’t afford paying KD 420 for health insurance each year” said Ahmad Hussein, an engineer with wife and 3 children. Mamduh Sharqawi mentioned “the decision as injustice against expatriates, particularly those with families and others that rarely visit the hospitals. The KD 50 scheme should remain in use, even if additional fees would be levied on those going for treatment in the hospitals”.
