KUWAIT CITY, Jan 18: Minister of Health Dr Jamal Al-Harbi ended the contract of General Services Company (health insurance for expatriates) to guide against notable observations made by the State Audit Bureau few years ago.
A source said the minister sent a letter to the company to end the contract that spanned almost 15 years, indicating the company will bear differences that may arise when the concerned departments in the ministry takes over.
He noted the contract was initially signed with the company in 2002 to offer health insurance services for expatriates and renew the contract every three years. In the same vein, the source said the company will be collecting all money owed the ministry until it finally hands over to the government-owned insurance company upon completion of the health insurance hospitals in the next three years.
