Kuwaiti Government health insurance for expats to stop in three years
18 November 2015
Nearly 3 million expatriates living and working in Kuwait are facing difficult healthcare challenges under a proposed government plan to close access to public health services over the next three years. Government officials are suggesting that a timetable has been established for the creation of expat-only hospitals accessible by higher-cost private health insurance. The shift would create a cascade of consequences for expatriates and citizens in Kuwait as well as the local public and private health sector. The Health Ministry is currently making plans for an eventual ban on expats using public health facilities.
