Kuwait to build three new hospitals

10 April 2011

The Kuwaiti government is planning to establish the Kuwait Health Assurance Company to relieve some of the pressure put on public hospitals crowded with patients, Kuwait Times has reported. The plan will include building three new health insurance hospitals, along with 15 policlinics, to serve both citizens and expatriates. The new plan would increase the fees paid by expatriates for health insurance, from KD 50 to KD 130 per year. The increase would be applied in five years, when the new hospitals are built.
