Rethinking Health Systems – Taiwan’s Second Generation NHI
To attain sustainable financing and advance its goals of expanded care reaching all clients, second-generation NHI has been implemented. The reform plan includes supplementary premiums, diversified payment schemes, expanded public information and a mechanism linking revenues and expenditure decisions.
This program proves that a government-run single-payer insurance system can efficiently provide quality health care to everyone, putting the greatest emphasis on the less-advantaged groups. Taiwan continues to develop a comprehensive social safety net and seeks to realize the universal coverage ideal promoted by WHO.
