Dubai To Cap Health Care Price Rises

By Dex Tennyson, for 27 November, 2014

From next year, new regulations will prevent the cost of private healthcare in Dubai from rising faster than inflation.

Increases will have to be approved by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA). The increase will be capped at 4.22 percent in 2015.

Further, only one rise will be allowed per year, and clinics and hospitals wanting to hike prices during 2015 will have to make their request to the DHA during November 2014.

The head of the DHA, Essa Al Maidoor, said that the new rules will balance the need for price increases with the interests of patients and facilitate a sustainable healthcare system.
