The Notice sets forth the following policies: establishing a long-term mechanism for urban employees’ medical insurance for serious diseases, expanding the coverage of the basic medical insurance system for urban employees, increasing the level of protection for serious and severe diseases, and reducing the burden of high medical expenses for employees with serious diseases.

The triple medical security system for basic medical insurance, critical illness insurance and medical assistance for urban employees and urban and rural residents in Beijing has been further improved. Medical expenses for employees with serious illnesses can be “reimbursed for a second time” while additional payment for medical insurance is not needed.
