Thai children have health insurance (health insurance) but during treatment, some special medicines are not included in the list of health insurance. However, with the help of benefactors and especially the partial support for medical examination and treatment for people with unexpected difficulties, Ngoc's family has stabilized their lives.

Or the case of Mr. Vo Van Boi (Dinh Hiep commune, Dau Tieng district) suffering from pneumonia and chronic hypertension should regularly be examined and treated at the Provincial General Hospital.

Sharing with us, Mr. Boi said: “In addition to being granted a health insurance card by the locality, I also receive meals for inpatient treatment and travel expenses. This support has helped my family reduce my anxiety whenever I am sick and no longer have the condition of being ill without being able to go to medical facilities for treatment. ”

Dr., Dr. Van Quang Tan, Director of the Provincial General Hospital, said that recently, poor patients are increasing with diseases such as: liver cancer, kidney failure, heart ... These patients all have health insurance, but during treatment, some special medicines are not on the list of health insurance so they are really difficult. Decision 3393 of the Provincial People's Committee is the right and timely policy to reduce the burden of medical expenses for the poor, towards social security.
