Claims from Health Insurance.

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by DarulUloomTT.net


I belong to a Health Insurance called UniMed. It is a compulsory plan for all teachers. A sum of $45 is automatically deducted from my monthly salary and placed in the fund. The government places this amount in the plan on your behalf also.The money is not invested from the fund. Is it permissible to submit medical claims and accept payment from this?


Due to the fact that your money is being deducted and placed towards this fund, it gives you the right to submit medical claims and accept payments from it.

And Allah knows best.
