Over USD 6Mn paid to insured retirees in Morocco in 2007

The hospitalization expenses paid off by the national fund of insurance "Caisse Nationale des Organismes de Prévoyance Sociale" (French acronym CNOPS) to insured retirees and their claimants, reached some USD 6Mn for the year 2007, revealed, here Wednesday, Moroccan Employment Minister, Mustapha Mansouri.

Speaking at the House of Representatives' (lower house) question time, the minister noted that the Mandatory Health Insurance (AMO) enabled some 74,929 new insured to benefit from health coverage.

The minister said services concern preventive and medical care.

The AMO guarantees risk insurance and fees of medical services following sickness, accident, delivery or physical rehabilitation to the insured and his family members, with the exception of cosmetic surgery.

With the AMO and the Medical Assistance Regime (RAMED), which is destined to the economically destitute population, the overall number of the population benefiting from medical insurance in Morocco will reach 50%.
