PM – Emergency Cases to Be Treated for Free

Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab issued a decision obliging university and private hospitals to provide free medical treatment to emergency cases and road accidents.

Patients will be treated at the expense of the state during the first 48 hours after their admission to hospitals.

After this period, patients at private hospitals will then decide either to stay at the hospital to be treated at their expenses or be transferred to the nearest public hospital.

Health Minister Dr. Adel al-Adawy said the decision will be applied on all hospitals.
