Muscat: Oman is studying a plan to introduce a health insurance scheme for Omani and expatriate employees in the private sector, according to Oman Chamber of Commerce and Industry (OCCI).
The plan is expected to be implemented over a number of phases and the chamber of commerce hopes it can be rolled out by early 2018.
The first phase will involve consultation with companies that have more than 100 employees to ensure cover for all staff.
This phase is expected to start in early 2018, according to the OCCI.
The second phase will include companies which have between 50 and 100 employees.
“Business should be informed about this and consider it when studying their future projects,” the OCCI stated.
