People over 14 years old to go to the doctor only need a citizen’s identity card

HanoiPatients over 14 years old who come to the National Children’s Hospital for examination only need to use their citizen identification.

The National Children’s Hospital said that this unit has now deployed chip-based citizen identification cards in medical examination and treatment at the hospital.

Accordingly, when patients go for medical examination (for children who have been granted citizenship – over 14 years old) or carry out administrative procedures at the hospital, they only need to use their citizen IDs. The patient’s health insurance information is checked on the data portal of Vietnam Health Insurance.

Regarding the implementation method, when the patient comes for examination, the hospital’s staff will check the citizen’s identity by scanning the QR code or through the VNEID application.

If the medical facility finds that the information is valid, confirms the participation in health insurance, then compares the information, picks up the patient according to the current medical examination and treatment process covered by the current health insurance, and informs the patient at the next visit.

In case the information is checked and found invalid, the medical facility should clearly explain to the patient that the status of the health insurance card on the identity card cannot be done. Medical examination and treatment with health insurance in these cases takes place normally by using paper health insurance cards, photo identification papers and applying to people who do not have citizen identification with a chip.
