Saudi Arabian sponsors are being reminded of the necessity of having international health insurance measures in place for their expatriate workers.
Al-Riyadh newspaper, cited by Arab News, reports many residents are currently unaware of the regulations regarding health insurance that were made compulsory by the ministry of health two years ago.
According to the publication, sponsors are blaming international health insurance providers for giving them false information in the hope of maximising their own financial gain.
However, in 2008, Dr Hamad Al Manie, minister of health at the time, announced a new mechanism to ensure expatriates living in the country would be provided with adequate health insurance.
But Saudi citizen Muhammed Al-Mehna explained despite the measures, people living in the nation are still unaware of their rights.
He said: "Both citizens and their workers remain totally unaware about the healthcare that they are entitled to under the scheme. They are therefore forced to consider health insurance premiums as an additional fee."
Some seven million expatriate employees are currently working in Saudi Arabia, the publication added.
Many nations require expatriates to take out health insurance cover in order to be permitted to reside in a country.
