Manda­tory health cover: the cost is too high…

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

A grace pe­riod of six months has been of­fered by DHA as it plans to en­force the fi­nal stage of its manda­tory health in­sur­ance scheme for all res­i­dents. I called one in­sur­ance bro­kers to check the plans they said for wife Dhs1,750 and two kids 650 each. I told them my wife does not need ma­ter­nity cover, then they are say­ing it’s manda­tory. If we have no plan to have a baby why we need ma­ter­nity cover. Even it is 650 each for three per­son it is Dhs1,950. Small salary peo­ple with two kids in school will not have even Dhs20 to spare per month. School fees, house rent, food ex­pense all in­crease every year ex­cept salary. Who knows all th­ese things. Even a per­son get­ting salary of 10K is suf­fer­ing nowa­days. Name with­held Dubai Dirham de­prived D Dubai
