Since the signing of theAgreement on Cooperation to Promote Inter-provincial Reimbursement under the Unified Basic Medical Insurance System for Urban and Rural Residents (NRCMS)in November 2016, CAMS Institute of Medical Information has been making efforts to develop technical specifications, configure hardware and software, and develop information systems under the guidance and support of the Primary Health Care Division of NHFPC, and have connected the information systems of provinces. Shaanxi, Gansu, Sichuan, Guizhou, and Jilin have provided inter-provincial reimbursement services for many patients. The signing of the two framework agreements this time will further expand the scope of inter-provincial reimbursement of NRCMS, making reimbursement of basic health insurance benefits all the more convenient for patients receiving care outside the province. The Institute of Medical Information will continue doing a good job in the development, operation and maintenance of the NRCMS inter-provincial reimbursement information system and provide technical support for administrators and care providers to promote the integration of provincial basic health insurance reimbursement systems.
