KD 130 health insurance for expats in 2020

A coordination between the Health Insurance Hospitals Company and Ministry of Health is being formed to offer the health insurance for expatriates beginning from 2020. The insurance premium will be KD 130 for each individual and will include expats who work in the private sector and their children, local Arabic news paper Al-Anba reported.

The insurance will cover examinations, xray and medicine, the source said, adding that the law does not indicate the party that will present health care for expatriates on visit visas after activating the Dhaman system.

What is the purpose and use of this insurance?, are we getting any benefits by this insurance?, we are paying high for all facilities we use including hospitals.

We believe that The State of Kuwait is one of the top peaceful countries in the world where a large number of expacts from different countries are residing in a very happy & peaceful manner.

We respect the laws/rules/decisions of this country we reside, simultaneously we request the authorities to thoroughly study the adverse result/end before enforcing this decision.

May Allah the Almighty save this country and the HH Amir and all others who are behind the welfare of this country....Aameen.

Thank You

What about government employees and their families?

Thursday, November 14, 2019
The main question is who is going to bear the medical insurance? As per the law whoever is the employer or sponsor of the worker have to pay the medical insurance which is not the case in many companies. Therefore the govt must make it mandatory for the employer or sponsor that the medical insurance should be borne only by them and not the employee.

@JJ : Everyone is not a fraud / Conman like you. Most of us Indians are working hard to make both ends meet.

Its ok no problem we will stay here in kuwait
Even they raise insurance to 500kd

Thursday, November 14, 2019
Going to be a heavy burden... no idea, Kuwait is gong in which direction.

Thursday, November 14, 2019
Well you get a full pvt insurance for less than 100 KD. So 130 KD insurance should be accepted in all hospitals including the high class hospitals......

OMG!!! It''s time to send our families back to our home country. Living in Kuwait with family is soon going to be difficult. At present for dependents it is KD 50/- for spouse and KD 30/- for child and if the health insurance fee is increased to KD 130/- per year for adult & child (is more than double for spouse and four times more for the child) then I don''t think anyone will live with their families here except for high earning families who can afford to pay this fee. This is too much and its really going to hurt the expat families in a broader way. I hope the health insurance company bring the rates down or else Kuwait will witness a massive exodus of expat families exiting Kuwait to their homeland or elsewhere.
