In line with its commitment to ensure continuous access to healthcare for all members of the community, DoH aims to provide access to the right healthcare services at the right time through securing health insurance coverage to all the residents of the Emirate.

After the exemption period expires, a fine of AED300 per month for every uninsured month, will be subjected to individuals who do not subscribe to a health insurance scheme. This is in accordance with the provisions of the Health Insurance Law No. 23/2005, its amendments and executive regulations.
