Poor people encouraged to join health insurance

Hanoi (VNA) - Roughly 17 million or more than 18 percent of Vietnam’s
population had not entered the health insurance programme by the end of 2016.
Most are labourers, poor people and students, the Vietnam Social Insurance
(VNSI) has said.


A
report from the agency showed that more than 81 percent people were covered by
health insurance in 2016, equivalent to 75 million people and 4.3 percent more
than 2015.


Of
the total, only 74,000 people from business households of agriculture,
forestry, fishery and salt production have insurance, only 4.5 percent of the
total population of this group.


The
main reason for this, the agency said, was enterprises who evaded paying
insurance premiums for workers. Meanwhile, supervision of social and health
insurance regulations remained poor.


Co-operation
between sectors in localities in implementing health insurance was also
ineffective, leading to difficulties in providing more people with insurance.


Nguyen
Thi Minh, VNSI General Director, said that the Law on Healthcare Insurance and
its benefit to insurance buyers has encouraged people to join the programme.


However,
Minh said, to make the Ministry of Health’s 90 percent target for health
coverage by 2020 feasible, it was necessary to alter mechanisms.


For
example, some poor people living on islands and in coastal areas have not
renewed their insurance cards after being given them two years ago, according
to the official.


Minh
said the VNSI has opened more branches to expand health insurance nationwide.
It has simplified administrative procedures for granting insurance cards to
help people sign up for insurance.


Currently,
62 out of 63 cities and provinces have achieved national targets for insurance
coverage. About 18 localities managed to have 90 percent of people covered by
health insurance.
The
lowest coverage rate of 68 percent is Binh Thuan province.-VNA
