Proposal for health insurance for visitors to Kuwait

Proposal for health insurance for visitors to Kuwait




Kuwait City: Member of Kuwait Parliament Khalil Al-Saleh revealed that he has presented a request for expediting discussions concerning charges of medical services offered to visitors of Kuwait which has been part of the Parliament’s agenda, reports Al-Rai daily.

He said the government approved the proposal when it was with the relevant committee, as the government was convinced about the significance of the proposal for reducing the pressure on government hospitals and eradicating the squandering of medicines.

Al-Saleh explained that the proposal obligates the sponsor to attach an insurance policy issued by an authorized company for the visitor he has invited to Kuwait. This will protect the public funds and enhance the role of the private sector as well.

According to the insurance policy, the visitor will receive free medical services from the private sector hospitals during his stay in Kuwait.

Such a proposal is implemented in some countries of the region. Meanwhile, Al-Saleh stressed the need to provide temporary flats for citizens who apply for housing until they receive the houses from Public Authority for Housing Welfare.

He said the rent allowance should be based on the number of family members, especially with the 9,000 housing applications being presented on a yearly basis.

Al-Saleh suggested constructing residential buildings to offer flats at cheap rents to those who have applied for housing but have not yet received.
