No cancelation of exemptionsOn Monday, an official source denied reports about the cancelation of medical exemptions granted to citizens who are not covered by health insurance or the Royal Medical Services.

The source told the Jordan News Agency, Petra, that medical exemptions will continue to be provided through the Royal Hashemite Court.

He said that exemptions will continue to be granted as agreed upon by Parliament through the Ministry of Political and Parliamentary Affairs, which will in turn submit them to the Royal Hashemite Court and then return them to the MPs.
