Oman’s mandatory universal health insurance policy for private sector employees, domestic workers and visitors was initially expected to be rolled out late 2019. In September 2019, the vice president of the insurance sector at Oman’s Capital Market Authority announced that the policy will start as early as mid-2020. The full implementation will be phased from 2020 to 2022 depending on the size of the company.
