Dubai puts a cap on private healthcare increases to conform with inflation
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said it will place a 4.22% limit on price increases in Dubai for healthcare services in 2015.
The DHA said the regulation model for healthcare prices is based on the annual inflation rate by the Dubai Statistics Center.
Essa Al Maidoor, director-general of the DHA said "the regulation will be applicable for all polyclinics, clinics and hospitals in Dubai and services provided to Dubai insurance policies.
“The aim of the price regulation model is to ensure balance between allowing price increases and protecting patient`s interest,” he added.
The continuing update for regulations by the DHA is helping regulate prices in the private health sector in Dubai.
This decision will protect patient rights while at the same time being fair towards healthcare providers, as it will make sure premium increases are contained and kept in check with inflation which is helping sustain growth in the industry.
In 2014, the DHA reported nearly 1 million insurance claims each month through the e-Claims portal, up from 500,000 claims a month in 2013.
