99 percent of residents in East China’s Anhui province have been covered by the country’s basic medical insurance programs, according to statistics released by the Anhui Provincial Healthcare Security Administration at a press briefing on December 4, 2020.

The press conference highlighted the province’s progress in healthcare security during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-20).

The province has raised 339.5 billion yuan (around $51.9 billion) of fund under the basic medical insurance programs since 2016, Jin Weijia, head of the administration said.

284.4 billion yuan has been spent from the fund, the official added.

Under the programs, urban and rural residents in Anhui have 62.04 percent of their hospitalization expenses reimbursed, and the reimbursement rate for the urban employed reaches 72.25 percent this year.

All poverty-stricken residents in the province have been covered by the basic medical programs. More than 800 million yuan of medical assistance fund were allocated to them on a yearly basis during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-20).

The direct settlement of cross-provincial medical expenses has been made possible in the Yangtze River Delta region, which consists of Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui.
