On Oct.28, Shanghai University Mengchao Cancer Hospital was granted the license to put the health insurance into effect. Patients from Shanghai as well as all over the country could pay their medical expenditure in our hospital by the health insurance, which will significantly reduce their financial burden.
Mengchao Cancer Hospital, the sole cancer hospital of Jiading District, started its trial operation on May.6. In August, we applied to Shanghai Health Insurance Management Center(SHIMC) for the license of settlement for the health insurance, upon which patients could reimburse their medical expenditure, including the cost of inpatient and outpatient. On Oct.19th, after the process of assessment, notice and check on spot by SHIMC, we successfully obtained the code of health insurance. On Oct.28, we were granted the license to put the health insurance into effect.
