The Minister of Finance revealed in an official statement that the UHIS (Universal Healthcare Insurance System) will now be fully implemented nationwide within 10 years, down from the previous 15-year timetable. The system will provide integrated, comprehensive medical insurance coverage for all Egyptian citizens.

The system is planned to be implemented in six phases. The implementation process is currently in the first phase, which will be completed before the end of FY22/23. Already covered in this phase are the Port Said, Luxor, and Ismailia governorates, with the Suez, Aswan, and South Sinai governorates remaining. Beneficiaries of the system can choose where to receive medical services out of all the medical facilities participating in the system. The insurance coverage includes over 3,000 health services.
