Saudi Arabia’s vision -2030 aims to bring fundamental changes in the health care financing and delivery system with a view to improve access to quality health care to its population. As a part of the national transformation program (NTP)-2020, the Ministry of Health (MOH) has proposed to increase private share of health spending through alternative financing and delivery mechanism, particularly through health insurance and partnering with the private sector. The cooperative health insurance (CHI) provides comprehensive health coverage to significant segment of workers in the private sector. This paper attempts to assess the prospective role of CHI in achieving the health system goals and examines the major challenges to be faced by the CHI while working with the private sector and suggests certain policy recommendations.
