Supreme Court rejects lawsuit to cancel new health care fees on expats
October 25, 2017, 1:47 pm

The administrative department in the Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by a lawyer against the Ministry of Health (MOH) to overturn its decision to increase health care fees for foreigners. The Fatwa and Legislation Department pleaded on behalf of the ministry of Health and demanded to dismiss the case and submitted a defense memorandum behind the ministry's decision.

The case was first heard by the court last August, and decided on October 4 to hold the case for the verdict until today. Health ministry has issued a decision to increase fees on expatriates due to increase in costs for providing health care services such as surgeries, medical equipment, laboratories and medical supplies. The decision came into force on October 1 with the exception of emergency and critical cases.
