In a letter addressed to the Minister of Health, Feras Al-Hawari, the federation stated that its withdrawal from the committee comes in protest against the Jordan Medical Association's (JMA) return to escalation through a letter addressed to the International Health Informatics Company, stipulating the implementation of the Cooperative Fund and the new wage scale.

JIF expressed its astonishment at the JMA’s insistence on implementing a wage scale that is not officially agreed upon, nor complies with previously upheld protocol.

The Insurance association hold the JMA responsible for "placing obstacles in the way of the committee's work before its meetings commence."
