Move on to get some hospital and clinic operators to cut their rates or risk coverage
Dubai: The relations between UAE’s medical insurers and healthcare providers are coming under fresh strain, and if not resolved at the earliest, can severely impact the delivery of medical services to citizens.
The latest incident centres around insurers setting an end-of-the-month deadline for some hospital and clinic operators to bring down the cost of consultancy and other treatment costs. This includes one of the UAE’s biggest privately-owned healthcare company.
If not, the insurers will stop “extending cover” to these facilities.
What this means for residents is pretty clear – they will not be able to visit any of the hospitals and clinics operated by these companies because their insurance policy specifically bars them.
