China’s healthcare system is undergoing significant reforms that are opening up new opportunities for international insurers. Universal insurance coverage is a key component of China’s goal to address the increasing burden of healthcare costs for its citizens. While the government has made great strides in recent years to reach this goal (currently almost 95 percent of the population is covered), the reality is that most of its citizens only have access to very basic healthcare coverage.
The middle and more affluent classes are increasingly turning to private insurance for more substantial coverage and are willing to pay a premium for access to high quality healthcare services. These circumstances offer a unique opportunity for private insurers to penetrate the market and offer optimal insurance models to fit targeted populations.

“We wanted to thank you for the time we spent together at the MTA conference and trade mission…it was our first time in China, and it was a pleasant experience and effective at the same time.”
“Thank you SO much… China was an eye opening experience for me. One-fourth of the world’s people will soon demand access to cutting edge healthcare via their expanding economy and increasing exposure on the world stage. I saw opportunities to both learn and teach… and I saw opportunity to provide options for them if seeking care abroad. I look forward to cultivating these new relationships on both a business and personal level”

“MTA did a great job by organizing the trade mission and Congress. The event opened new opportunities to all the participants of the trade mission. To get acquainted with so many Chinese serious businessmen during one week face to face would have been not possible without this trip. We all do appreciate and are sincerely grateful to MTA. Moreover the interaction within the group was incredible. I am sure new projects will be launched as a result.”
