Authority issues mandatory health insurance regulations for Oman

The Capital Market Authority (CMA) has issued regulations underpinning the Health Insurance Scheme (Dhamani) to private sector workers, residents and visitors to the Sultanate.

Abdullah Salim al Salmi, (pictured) Executive President of the Capital Market Authority said:

“The issuance of the decision represents an advanced step in the readiness of the legislative structure and legal frameworks, which is one of the five steps adopted by the Authority in the implementation of the Dhamani project.”

He added:

“The health insurance rules aim to regulate the obligations of all parties, namely insurers, third party administrators, health services providers, the worker and employer.”

Al Salmi explained that the health insurance rules set out the regulations and specify the legal obligations of each of the parties in the insurance process in four chapters focusing on the following: General provisions governing health insurance market; licensing requirements to carry out the business; obligations of the parties; and dispute resolution.
