Expats in UAE to get insurance

Expatriates residing in Dubai and the Northern Emirates will be covered by a health insurance system from next year, under a federal insurance law.
By 2008, a federal law on health insurance will be enacted to provide expat residents with health services in return for a health insurance premium.
The draft law has been finalised and submitted to the Legislations Committee. It awaits approval of higher authorities.
In Abu Dhabi, more than half a million expatriates have been covered by a mandatory health insurance since July 2006.
