The National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA) says the insurance's finances will remain sound till the end of the year.


NHIA commissioner Shi Chong-liang says its reserves are enough to cover one month of insurance payments.


Shi says his agency has put in a lot of effort in adjusting the co-payment schemes and the Drug Expenditure Target to make sure that the national insurance system is sustainable.

He also says that NT$20 billion in subsidies from last year's surplus tax revenue will help a lot too.


The recent rise of the health insurance premium rate, to 5.17%, was done in 2021, and there have been reports that it'll be raised again but Health Minister Xue Rui-yuan said last week that the rate hike won't happen even next year.
