The Notice clarified that the funds needed for implementing the commercial medical insurance for small, remote and scattered units should be listed and covered in the subsidy budgets for the individuals who are far away from military medical institutions and seek outsourcing outpatient service and emergency medical treatment from civilian organizations, and the individuals are not responsible for the expenses.

The insurance scheme stipulated in the Notice made relevant regulations on the maximum annual reimbursement limit of medical expenses made by active servicemen, family members enjoying preferential medical service and staff seeking medical treatment from military medical institutions in small, remote and scattered units far away from military medical institutions when they suffered accidental injuries and diseases and sought treatment in local hospitals.

The Notice will come into effect as of January 1, 2013.
