Malaysia:Govt studies health takaful for low and middle income groups

26 Jul 2018

The government is studying the possibility of introducing health takaful coverage for low and middle income Malaysians, Health Minister Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad has revealed.

The detailed study on health takaful protection would pave the way for coverage that allows the bottom 40% of Malaysians to have more access to health, treatment, medication and medical interventions, reports The Malaysian Reserve.

“The takaful based options will emphasise the financing of cost effective treatment models such as daily or daycare treatments and inpatient treatments, among others,” Dr Dzulkefly said in Parliament.

He was responding to a question from a lawmaker who queried the latest development regarding the implementation of the country’s National Healthcare Scheme.
