Key highlights

  • Changing demographics, a growing population and rising healthcare costs led the Chinese government to introduce ambitious healthcare reforms during the review period. 
  • The government established a basic universal healthcare system in April 2009, to provide accessible and affordable health services to the country’s 1.35 billion citizens by 2020.
  • The number of urban residents covered by public health insurance was only 65% in 2013, indicating the complexities of segmenting rural-urban migrants in the country. 
  • Despite the broad coverage of public health insurance schemes, some gaps remain. 
  • While the contribution to the Urban Employee Basic Medical Insurance (UEBMI) remains fixed at a minimum of 6% of the employee’s annual salary, provincial contributions to Urban Resident Basic Medical Insurance (URBMI) and the New Rural Cooperative Medical Scheme (NRCMS) vary widely depending upon the type of insurance, and place of residence. 
  • China – the world’s most populated country with 1.35 billion residents in 2013 – also has a substantial aging population. 
  • Changing lifestyles and an increase in disease profiles have led to rising consumer healthcare expenditure.
