MoH action against doctors for helping expatriates to skip paying fee

The Ministry of Health (MoH) will take disciplinary action against doctors who conducted medical examinations and X-rays for expatriate patients without charging the prescribed fees for the procedures, local daily Kuwait Times reported quoting sources.

The action will include financial consequences of those who were treated without fees, it added.

According to report, the MoH inspectors noticed the uses of medical devices and services without the patient paying the bill for the service. This happens when some doctors are letting some relatives and friends, who are expatriates, to use the services without paying the required fee. Disciplinary measures will be taken against the violating doctors, including referring them to an investigation within the ministry or referring them to the Public Prosecution Office if it is found that this doctor committed these violations repeatedly, report clarified.
