medical-school-tuitionMinistry of Health will activate its plan for health reform, as per which the health charges for expatriates will increase by 15 percent for medical examinations which are provided to them only during emergencies.

They revealed that this plan is based on a comprehensive study, which was discussed during the meeting of the medical councils, on the cost of using medical systems and medical examination tools. These services are currently provided at low costs while their costs in private medical centers are ten times higher.
