Universal Health Coverage for Most Armenians in Next 5-10 Years

Ara Babloyan, who heads the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Health Care, Maternity and Childhood, told reporters today that a majority of Armenian citizens would be covered by universal health insurance in the next 5-10 years.

Babloyan said that a health insurance program had already been launched in Armenia by international companies and that the government would assume the task of obligating the private sector to get its employees covered.

Babloyan said a yearly average plan would cost 52,000 AMD ($126)
