A policy briefing held on Sept 30 elaborated on guidelines for promoting cross-provincial government services issued by the General Office of the State Council on Sept 29, which lists 140 services.

Providing cross-provincial government services for enterprises and people is an important move to deepen administrative reform and improve the business environment, said Di Jing of the General Office of the State Council.

According to Li Jingsheng with the Ministry of Public Security, the ministry has offered a total of 35 frequently needed services across provinces, such as getting or replacing ID cards, doing tests for a driver’s licenses, conducting annual inspections for motor vehicles and applying for permits to enter or exit the country.

People can receive their annual social insurance information via the national public service platform for social insurance, which was launched in September 2019, said Zhai Yanli with the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.

Soon, they said, more services will be offered online, such as transferring unemployment insurance relations as well as applying for and replacing social insurance cards. People will also be able to inquire about monthly social insurance payment records.

According to Huang Huabo, an insurance fund supervisor with the National Healthcare Insurance Administration, China has made substantial progress in cross-provincial direct settlement of hospital expenses.

By Sept 28, 7.11 million people were filed on the national platform, with 35,739 medical institutions available.

Among the most frequently used cross-provincial services, Hua said the administration will provide electronic medical care certificates by the end of 2020, put services like alteration of basic medical care information, registration of medical care of rural and urban residents and outpatient cost online by the end of 2021, and realize review and payment of maternity insurance by the end of 2022.
