Rural residents and urban unemployed will get same coverage

Medical insurance programs for China's rural residents and urban unemployed will be merged into a single basic health insurance plan to improve equality and efficiency, according to a notice issued on Tuesday by the State Council, or China's cabinet.

The government will increase subsidies to the basic insurance program, and subscribers will share a greater burden of the total insurance fund, the notice said.
