China plans new system for patients to pay after treatment

China’s health authorities have introduced a new medical payment method that allows patients to “pay after” they receive treatment.

Currently, Chinese citizens must pay first and then apply for a 70 percent reimbursement covered by medical insurance.

Hospitals are said to be welcoming the new method. Hu Jing, who’s a department head at a county hospital, says now they won’t have to go after patients for the bills.

“In the past, we had a manager as a debt collector. Any patients waiting to receive an operation would first fill out a form about their medical costs. Their family will then take the form and pay the bill before the patients get their operations. The practice was likely to cause disputes between patients and medical providers.”

Once the new system is implemented, patients will receive treatment first and then only pay the part not included in the medical insurance.

The rest will be paid by the government.

The new “pay after” plan is expected to be implemented in over 20 provinces later this year.

The Health Ministry says it won’t be adopted nationwide yet, due to an immature social credit and medical insurance system.

PSY & Lin Chi-ling

When Korean sensation Psy met the pride of Taiwan, Lin Chi-ling (林志玲), to do the world-famous horse riding dance, it was hot, hot, hot.

Chi-ling's boobs bobbed and bounced in time to the music, while her 113cm-long legs mesmerized the Gangnam Style singer, who was moved to exclaim: "What a sexy horse!"

The two were the highlight of Shanghai-based Dragon TV's Spring Festival Gala that was recorded in the studio on Friday and is scheduled to be broadcast on Lunar New Year's Eve on February 9.

Psy's debut performance in China, lasting just 5 minutes, earned him a fat paycheck of 3 million yuan ($481,500).
