Abu Dhabi enforces compulsory insurance

The Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) has issued a warning to all residents in the Emirate to maintain an up-to-date health insurance policy or else face a stiff penalty.

HAAD wants all companies and UAE nationals who have workers under their sponsorship to be aware of the national health insurance requirement as well as the new mechanisms now in place to enforce it.

Abu Dhabi’s Health Insurance Law states that active employers or sponsors in the Emirate must provide some form of health insurance to all employees and their family members, including an employee’s spouse as well as cover for three children aged 18 or lower.

The laws apply to all expatriate workers too.
