Jordan: All cancer patients will be insured

By JT – Jun 22,2018 – JORDAN TIMES

AMMAN —The Cabinet, upon the recommendation of Health Minister Mahmoud Sheyyab, decided on Thursday to cover all patients diagnosed with cancer with free insurance.

Each of these citizens will receive an insurance card to be renewed annually till the end of treatment, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The decision authorises heads of public and military hospitals across Jordan to transfer cancer patients directly to the King Hussein Cancer Centre (KHCC), universities, the Royal Medical Services (RMS) hospitals and Prince Hamzah Hospital without the need to obtain the approval through a special medical committee.
