Traffic accident patients to be treated without innocence certificates

Victims of traffic accidents need not to provide certificates affirming that they did not violate transport law to receive treatment at a medical clinic

Victims of traffic accidents need not to provide certificates affirming that they did not violate transport law to receive treatment at a medical clinic, but police or insurance companies must complete the task.

This provision was included in a new draft issued by the Ministry of Health (MoH) after the Ministry of Justice ordered MoH to change the content of the previous decree on insurance for victims of traffic accidents because the previous decree caused patients severe irritation.

MoH discussed to issue on June 10 and decided the insurance or police will be responsible for granting certificates stating whether or not accident victims had breached traffic laws.

The new draft also regulates details of treatment papers and health records of insurance card holders.

In addition, drivers suffering from epilepsy or myocardial infarction will receive full health insurance. Medical clinics are asked to provide timely treatment to traffic accident patients who are responsible for providing proof of insurance afterward.
