Call To Stop Government Healthcare For Expats
Category: Expats

One of the candidate for parliament election Sami AlDabbous called on the government to stop providing healthcare for expatriates at public hospitals and replace it with a health insurance scheme. 

The candidate said that every expatriate in Kuwait costs the health system KD 562 per year and they pay only KD 52 to the government.

Dabbous did not say how he reached these calculations because they appear to be highly exaggerated. Based on his calculations, the cost of the healthcare for expats will be close to KD 1.8 billion per year which is far above the health ministry budget even without including the expenses of Kuwaiti citizens.
