A new type of mutual insurance for medical staff members is expected to be launched next year, to provide corresponding guarantee for them when medical accident occurs.
"Covering all the 2.9 million medical workers in China, the mutual insurance, initiated by Cncare, will greatly encourage famous and experienced doctors to work in multiple hospitals, especially in private medical institutions," said Han Xiaohong, chairman of Health Management and Health Insurance Society under Chinese Non-governmental Medical Institutions Association on Friday.
Han, also one of the founders of Cncare, made these remarks at the annual meeting of Health Management and Health Insurance Society in Bo'ao, Hainan province.
Cncare is a service provider of health security for Chinese workers, specializing in providing institutions and enterprises with healthcare services based on general medical treatment.
The insurance for physicians has been authorized by China Medical Doctor Association and Chinese Non-governmental Medical Institutions Association, she said, stressing that the insurance will promote the development of private medical institutions in China and help solve the difficulty of ordinary people seeing a doctor.
With the promotion of healthcare reform by the central government, China's non-public medical institutions have seen unprecedented development.
On the other hand, the insurance will accelerate the innovation pace of insurance industry, she added.
Cncare offers a mutual helping platform for medical staff members, especially doctors, through the mutual insurance.
All the doctors, including those who work in public hospitals, can buy the insurance by themselves.
It was also announced at the annual meeting that seven insurance companies, including People's Insurance Company of China and Sunshine Insurance, have signed contracts with Ciming (Bo'ao) International Hospital through the platform of Cncare, in order to provide insurance service for the patients of the hospital.
"Connecting medical institutions and insurance companies, Cncare is a medical service platform, which constructs information, selects companies and integrates resources," said Han.
