The Green Paper on National Health Insurance (NHI) was published on 12 August 2011. It is open for public comment until 30 December 2011. The Green Paper contains the draft proposals of government for NHI. Once adopted by Parliament, it will be called a White Paper, and will then constitute official government policy. Although the Green Paper only contains high-level proposals, it provides a framework for the implementation of NHI. This article briefly reviews these proposals, and their implications for medical practice.
