Nanjing to ditch preferential medical plans for government employees

The city government of Nanjing will replace its preferential medical care system for its employees in 2013 with a uniform medical insurance plan that aims to more fairly cover all the city's residents.
Starting January 1, 2013, all government branches and their affiliated organizations in the city will be required to join the medical insurance plan, which will no longer be paid for by the government.
Some 24 regions in China, including Beijing and Tianjin, have already implemented reforms to their civil service medical care plan after preferential medical care plans for government employees triggered widespread grumbling from the public.
