MP Safa Al-Hashem welcomed a decision by the health ministry to increase by 100 percent charges expatriate women have to pay at maternity hospitals. According to Kuwait Times report she said the new raise will regulate the service.
Hashem, who has been pressing the government to increase charges on expatriates, said the decision will greatly benefit operations at maternity hospitals run by the health ministry. She praised the health minister for accepting some of her proposals that call for imposing a raft of charges on expatriates, whom she blames for disruption of main services in the country.
Meanwhile, a proposal recently made by Hashem on violations mandating expats’ deportation was referred to relevant parliamentary committees.
