See below for details of FOUR health insurance specific conferences planned in the next few months.
More mandatory health insurance in the MENA region?
Yes there will be. But don't believe what you read in the media about where, when or how. At Consilient we are in close communication with some of the governments in the region who are thinking about how to address their healthcare funding issues. We advise all market participants to be patient and not to listen to rumours. That said, you may want to check with us for insights that may assist your strategy!
First Oman Health Insurance Forum convened
On 22 August, we hosted our first Oman Health Insurance Forum at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Muscat. As far as we are aware, there are 9 domestic and 6 international licensed insurers selling health insurance in Oman. Although the event was organised at short notice, we were pleased to welcome senior executives of 6 companies. The 3-hour discussion focused on the challenges that insurers may face as well as the opportunities if the Omani Government introduces mandatory health insurance.
We aim to make this a regular invitation only event for CEOs and country heads (or their appointed deputies)
of health insurers, reinsurers and third party administrators. If you would like your company to be represented at our next meeting please click the button below to email us your request and nominee's details.
