Aït Taleb ensures that hospitalization remains free for chronic or incurable illnesses – Telquel.ma

En response to an oral question in the House of Representatives on “the difficulties of benefiting from the compulsory health insurance scheme (AMO)”, posed by the Istiqlalian Group of Unity and Egalitarianism, Khalid Aït Taleb assured that his department was aware of the constraints of the switch from RAMED to AMO Tadamon, stressing that “correspondence was sent and circulars issued to ensure that former RAMED beneficiaries suffering from chronic or incurable illnesses could continue to benefit from treatment in public hospitals”.

Furthermore, the government has strengthened the legal arsenal in order to generalize medical coverage for the benefit of all categories of citizens, added Aït Taleb, citing the injection of 9.5 billion dirhams to ensure medical coverage for around 11 million citizens having previously been beneficiaries of RAMED.

In this same vein, and in response to an oral question on “the problems of generalization of the medical coverage system” posed by the Haraki group, the minister underlined that the automatic switch from RAMED to AMO Tadamon had given rise to a social problem concerning “the exclusion of a number of citizens due to lack of eligibility”.

And to add that “targeting was carried out on the basis of the Unified Social Register which adopts the index 9.32, beyond which one must adhere to a medical coverage plan depending on the social situation”.

During the implementation of the medical coverage project, “possible special social cases may arise”, according to the minister who specifies that, for these cases, solutions will be sought so that they benefit from this project.
