Compulsory health insurance planned for locals and expats in Bahrain - P4H Network

Compulsory health insurance planned for locals and expats in Bahrain

Bahrain’s National Health Insurance Scheme (Sehati) for expats is being brought in late 2020 or early 2021. Expats will be covered by insurance paid for by their employers, which will entitle them to treatment at private and public facilities. Once Sehati is launched, Bahrainis will continue to be eligible for free services at public health facilities but could pay an additional insurance premium to access private-sector treatment. The insurance will reduce the number of Bahrainis seeking treatment elsewhere.

The insurance will be funded through subscriptions to insurance packages that are specific to each category of an insured person.
