Kuwait Health service fees for expats – ‘Any decision will target visitors not residents’



A high-ranking source from the ministry said, “The ministry has not endorsed any figures so far. However, any decision in this regard will target visitors to Kuwait and not residents, as their new health insurance will cover the cost of their medication”. He went on to clarify that, “The new charges of medical services for visitors will not exceed 25 percent in general. It will definitely not exceed the charges in the private health sector regardless the type of service.”

The source said, “The new charges of the medical services provided in government hospitals will be covered by the new health insurance plan, which means those with valid residency will not feel the financial burden when they visit government hospitals or clinics”.
