China Health Insurance Market: Premium Types – Regular vs. Single Premium Models

Posted by

In accordance with a report by TechSci Research titled “China Health Insurance Market– By Region Competition, Forecast and Opportunities, 2018-2028F,” the projected growth of the China health insurance market is attributed to various factors. These include the increasing prevalence of health insurance plans and a rise in the costs associated with daycare procedures, contributing to heightened market demand. This surge in demand reflects a growing consumer interest in health insurance.

Healthcare insurance functions as coverage for expenses incurred during the treatment of diseases, injuries, or other physical and mental impairments. It operates on a compensation model, wherein regular and single premiums or payroll taxes are paid in exchange for healthcare benefits. The insurer is obligated to cover the policyholder’s medical expenses based on the policy’s duration and coverage, with variations possible based on factors like disease types, age groups, and governmental policies.

The market is categorized into two types of insurance providers: public health insurance and private health insurance. Public health insurance, primarily administered by state or federal governments, is exemplified by the Urban Employee Basic Medical Insurance (UEBMI) program introduced in 1998. This government-run initiative has played a significant role in the healthcare sector and is known for its cost-effectiveness due to lower administrative expenses.

Despite the dominance of public health insurance, the private segment is expected to witness growth throughout the forecast period. This expansion is fueled by an increasing number of private insurers offering customized policies. Encouraging individuals not covered by employer or government insurance programs to opt for private healthcare insurance further stimulates the growth of private insurance companies.

Contemporary consumers seek health insurance plans with additional benefits, leading to a rise in the number of available plans. This trend is driven by an enhanced awareness of health risks, contributing to the overall market growth.
