Council of State receives Healthcare Act exec regs to review before Cabinet

LEGISLATION WATCH- Council of State reviewing Healthcare Act regs before they’re sent to Cabinet: The Health Ministry has sent the executive regulations to the Universal Healthcare Act to the Council of State (Maglis Al Dawla) for review before they are sent to the Ismail Cabinet to be issued, Alaa Ghanam, a member of the ministry’s healthcare act committee, tells Youm7. Cabinet was due to receive the regs before the end of last week, according to previous statements by Health Minister Ahmed Rady, who also said that “national dialogue” sessions would be held next month to discuss the pricing of medical services offered under act.

Three new regulators in the making: The committee will be meeting in mid-March to establish the three new authorities that will oversee the new healthcare system once implementation starts in July, beginning with Canal cities. President Abdel Fattah El Sisi had signed the Universal Healthcare Act into law in January. Tap or click here for a refresher.
