Mediclinic Int'l notes certain co-payment waiving

27 April 2017 09:35

Mediclinic International said that, on April 26, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, ordered the waiving of the 20% co-payment for holders of a Thiqa medical insurance card, when receiving treatment at the private healthcare facilities in Abu Dhabi.

It said the orders were to take immediate effect. His Highness was also Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. The group was awaiting precise details of the changes from the Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD).

On 1 July 2016, HAAD introduced a 20% co-payment for Thiqa patients (those covered by health insurance for UAE Nationals or others of similar status in Abu Dhabi) using private healthcare facilities.

Mediclinic said it would continue to monitor the regulatory environment and the extent to which these changes would affect the Middle East operating platform.

At 9:35am: (LON:MDC) Mediclinic International Plc share price was +139.5p at 870.5p
