Responsibility for expatriate healthcare is to be transferred from the Ministry of Health (MoH) to the Health Assurance Hospitals Company (Dhaman) under government plans.

“Insured expats will get a unified policy providing healthcare through a specified list of medications and radiology tests,” said Al-Saleh. “We are currently discussing the date of launching the service with MoH.”

Dhaman is currently building three hospitals, in Al Ahmadi, Al Jahra and Al Farwaniya, with a series of primary centres acting as the patient’s first point of entry into the healthcare system. Ministry hospitals will continue to provide specialist services.

Dhaman was established by ministerial decree and is structured as a public-private-partnership (PPP) entity, with pledged capital of KD 230 Million held by Kuwait Investment Authority and Public Institution for Social Security at 24%, Arabi Holding Group at 26% and 50% of shares to be allocated to Kuwaiti nationals.
