The Saudi Arabia health insurance market was worth US$ 5.68 Billion in 2019. Health insurance is a type of insurance coverage that periodically charges a sum from the policyholder and pays for medical and surgical expenses incurred by the individual in case of a medical emergency. An efficient health insurance plan includes services such as diagnosis and treatment for chronic illnesses and conditions, psychiatric care, emergency evacuation and transportation, in-patient and out-patient treatment, maternity, dental care, etc. The key health insurance providers in Saudi Arabia are Bupa Saudi Arabia, Tawuniya, MedGulf Arabia, etc.
The increasing population and diversification of the nation’s economy are among the key factors driving the Saudi Arabia health insurance market. Resulting from the growing industrialization and increasing job opportunities, expatriates from all around the globe are migrating to the country, catalyzing the growth of the healthcare and health insurance sector. Health insurance in Saudi Arabia is oriented towards easing the financial stress that comes with having to pay exorbitant medical bills due to unexpected illness or injury. Additionally, the Saudi Arabian government mandates health coverage for all nationals and non-nationals. The country began implementing the mandatory unified health insurance scheme in July 2016, with the system completely in place since 2017. It is compulsory for all private sector organisations to provide health insurance to their employees as well as their dependants – this includes spouse, unmarried daughters and male children below 25 years of age. Furthermore, factors such as rising population, increasing healthcare expenditures, growing prevalence of various life style diseases, improving healthcare infrastructure, etc. are also catalyzing the growth of the health insurance market in Saudi Arabia. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the Saudi Arabia health insurance market to exhibit moderate growth during 2020-2025.
