I’m curious to see what health care plan China will eventually come out with. I’d guess they will take a close look at Taiwan’s national health care plan which is one of the best in the world. It’s based on the U.S. Medicare system but all Taiwanese must pay from when they are one month old—99% of the population are covered. Also all foreign workers must pay. On average it’s about $18 U.S. per month and covers most dental. An average clinic visit with a prescription for a common cold and maybe an x-ray for example costs about $4 U.S.
News reports suggest China is already recruiting a lot of Taiwanese doctors. Taiwan is also beginning medical tourism and many Chinese come for medical services.
Here’s a good link about it:
