In section 1, we give an overview of the economy and the health sector in China.
An emphasis is put on the need for a new RCMS (Rural Cooperative Medical System) policy, especially in view of the urban-rural disparity.
The RCMS project, and specially its workplan, is summarized in section 2. The initial stage of this workplan comprised the organization of household surveys in the 14 pilot counties.
Selected results are presented in section 3, especially concerning average income and health care expenses, and causes of non-use of publicly provided health care.
In section 4, we provide information on the implementation of the RCMS.
There is substantial variation among the counties, and significant scope for adjustments in the design of RCMS.
To illustrate possible adjustments, we analyze and simulate changes in the RCMS of Qidong County in section 5. A summary of the development of RCMS and future perspectives is given in section 6, whereas we conclude in section 7.
