Nanjing offers free health checks to migrant workers

Nanjing city launched on Tuesday a free physical examination program for migrant workers at construction sites in the city and the first batch of 170,000 workers have already started to enjoy free physical examination.
The city released in September a new regulation on enhancing basic medical care and treatments for construction workers, which stipulates that all construction operators in Nanjing whose major disease medical insurances are valid can enjoy a free check-up after they receive the Nanjing Resident Card.
Before that, construction workers in Nanjing already enjoyed the favorable policy of “refund for 50 to 80 percent of medical care bills below 800 yuan” and refund for over 80 percent of hospitalization expenses if their medical insurance covers related treatments.
Statistics show there are some 500,000 migrant workers at construction sites in Nanjing.
