In early May, I wrote a blog on the Dubai Health Authority’s (DHA) efforts to implement employer mandatory health insurance.  Since my blog, the Director-General of the DHA has put the funding scheme on hold until 2010.

Instead of paraphrasing a nice article in the Khaleej Times, you may find it here if you would like more information on the topic.

  2. It will be interesting to monitor this if it actually goes into effect in 2010. Thanks for the update.

    • It will be interesting and my pleasure Nik. Dubai is overextended in every way right now.

      Health coverage is already mandatory in Abu Dhabi so I imagine Dubai will follow in 2010.
