    Tips to avoid penalty headaches on Dubai's mandatory health coverage

    Dubai, UAE, March 23, 2017:  An unintended consequence of mandatory health insurance has been the commoditization of health plans. What was once seen as an additional benefit for some key employees has become mandatory for all employees – naturally leading to a massive increase in demand for the health insurance industry.
