Health Insurance in China: Variation in Co-Payments and Psychiatric Hospital Utilization
The Journal of Mental Health Policy and Economics (Impact Factor: 0.97). 03/2014; 17(1):25-32.
Economic reform in China 30 years ago virtually eliminated all public health insurance. In the last 10 years, diverse government insurance programs have been implemented, now covering 95% of the population, primarily for inpatient care. While the development of health care in China is an incomplete work in progress and highly variable, it is unclear whether the depth of insurance coverage affects the accessibility, length of stay (LOS) of inpatient mental health services or not.
