VN: 5,000 health insurance cards issued with incorrect information
Local health insurance authorities of the central province of Nghệ An have issued some 5,000 health insurance cards with wrong personal information, the provincial authority has said.
A group of supervisors from the province’s People’s Council released the figure in a report after conducting urgent checks on local health insurance authorities in the province’s Tương Dương District.
The supervisors found that district health insurance agencies last year issued some 6,800 health insurance card, but 5,000 of them contained incorrect information, including names, gender, addresses and identify numbers.
Most of the errors were blamed on insurance officials’ lack of caution while preparing profiles for holders, which was the first step in the process of granting insurance.
