Identity cards (Iqama/Muqeem or National Id) can be used to identify insured people visiting a Saudi health care provider from January 2020.
The Council of Cooperative Health Insurance (CCHI) announced the move with a campaign launched under the banner “We have made it easier for you.”
“The insured no longer need to present the health care insurance company card when visiting health care providers. Citizens can use their national identity card and residents their residency card,” Dr. Shabab Al-Ghamdi, the council’s secretary-general said.
Information about personal health insurance can be found on the council’s website by entering a national identity card or residency card number.
