Medical account sharing available in Inner Mongolia
According to news released by the Healthcare Security Administration of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, insured citizens will be allowed to share their personal medical insurance accounts with their family members from 2021.
In order to consolidate the results accomplished during the poverty alleviation process and facilitate rural rejuvenation in the region, the government will offer more financial assistance to impoverished villagers, enabling them to participate in the basic medical insurance scheme for urban and rural citizens in the autonomous region.
Policies are being formulated to complete mechanisms concerning basic medical services, critical illness insurance and medical assistance.
To further relieve the financial burdens posed by medical fees, the government will include outpatient expenses into the medical insurance payment system, and push ahead with the trial program on a long-term care insurance system for disabled groups.
In addition, the financial subsidies issued by the government to personal medical accounts will be increased. More designated medical centers and institutions will gain access to chronic care medicine and drugs for special uses.
