Residents not interested in family doctor

The City People’s Council yesterday checked preventive medicine missions in Go Vap District which has five family doctor centers in medical clinics.

Family doctor model has operated from March, 2014 but people are not interested in the model because of complicated paper formality of medical insurance.

Huynh Cong Hung, head of the council’s Cultural and Social Committee,  urged the Preventive Medicine Center in Go Vap District to continue implementing the family doctor project and provide examination and treatment covered by health insurance as well as supply information to residents, making them understand the healthcare policy.
