(HBO) – A delegation from the Committee for Ethnic Affairs of the Hoa Binh People’s Council led by head of the committee Nguyen Thi Oanh had a working session on October 30 at the provincial Social Security Agency and the Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to supervise the implementation of health insurance among the ethnic minority communities in the locality in the 2015-2018 period.

Nguyen Thi Oanh, head of the Committee for Ethnic Affairs of the Hoa Binh People’s Council, head of the provincial Party Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission and President of the province’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee, addresses the session.

At the end of 2018, the coverage of health insurance in Hoa Binh reached 96.6 percent of the local population. Allof the residents from ethnic minority communities living in disadvantageous areas received free health insurance in line with regulations.

The provincial Social Security Agency has fully applied health insurance policies on ethnic minority communities in a timely manner, ensuring the rights of people joining the insurance.

However, shortcomings and limitations have still lingered in the implementation of health insurance policies among ethnic minority communities in some localities.

Concluding the supervision session, Oanh, who is also head of the provincial Party Committee’s Mass Mobilisation Commission and President of the province’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Committee, asked the provincial Social Security Agency and Department of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs to continue promoting communications and the implementation of health insurance policies for ethnic minority residents across the province.

It is necessary to mobilize resources for the improvement of health care infrastructure and equipment, thus enhancing service quality, she said, stressing the need for strengthening the inspection and settlement of complaints and denouncements related to the implementation of health insurance policies.

At the same time, the health insurance fund must be used in an effective manner, she added.

Regarding the proposals of the two units, she said that the supervision team will gather all ideas and forward them to relevant agencies for consideration and adjustments to suit the reality./.
