Payment and Insurance

Sidra Medical and Research Center puts patients first as the focus of our new Sidra Outpatient Clinic . As part of that focus, our wish is to make payment and access to our services as simple as possible.

HMC Health Card

We accept HMC health cards from all patients referred to the Sidra Outpatient Clinic. This includes both Qatari nationals and expatriates with a Qatari residency permit.

Patients using their HMC health card at Sidra will be charged similar rates for health services as they currently pay at HMC. We expect this form of payment to remain in place until a new insurance or other payment program is developed nationally.

Private Insurance

Where Sidra has provider agreements with insurance companies, Sidra will directly bill the insurance company for you.

If Sidra does not have a provider agreement with your insurance company, you or a sponsoring agency such as a national embassy will be responsible for paying for services at the time of the appointment unless other arrangements have been made in advance.

Where applicable, our registration staff will assist you in completing the necessary paperwork so that you may receive reimbursement from your insurance company.

Cash or credit/debit card payment

Sidra accepts cash, credit or debit cards for all of our services.

If you require more information about billing and insurance, please contact any of the registration staff at the clinics or a financial counselor by calling 4003-6056 or 4003-6058. They will be happy to assist you.
