Health Ministry finalises health insurance law, to send it to parliament

The final draft of the national health ins law was completed by the Health Ministry and will be passed on to the House of Representatives, Health Minister Ahmed Rady said, according to Al Borsa. The latest version of the bill includes a wider array of ailments previously excluded, including mental health diseases, injuries related to natural disasters, and preventative treatment, Doctors Syndicate Secretary-General Mona Mina said. However, a number of articles were not amended, including defining people in need of ins and the rights of doctors and medical service providers, Daily News Egypt reported. Rady also said the ministry is moving forward with plans to restructure Vacsera, adding that there would be no need to import infant formula again once a production plant being built in cooperation with the armed forces is completed.
