(Chinhphu.vn) – The mother of Mr. Truong Vinh Phu (in Yen Bai Province) has diabetes, registered for medical examination and treatment at the General Hospital of the province. Because the hospital is away from home, Mr. Phu's mother had a difficulty going to the hospital and taking medicine and injections every month.

Mr. Phu would like to ask, can his mother transfer to the Endocrinology Hospital to register for medical examination and treatment?

Regarding this issue, Social Security of Yen Bai Province responds as follows

Pursuant to Item 1, Article 9 of the Circular No. 40/2015 / TT-BYT dated November 16, 2015 of the Ministry of Health regulating the registration of medical examination and treatment for initial health insurance and the transfer of medical examination and treatment services for health insurance: “Each participant of health insurance may register for initial medical services at any of health facilities prescribed in Clauses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 Article 5 and Article 6 of this Circular in any of the following cases: (The medical examination and treatment facility is initially at the provincial level and equivalent; the facility registers initial medical examination and treatment for health insurance at the central level and equivalent) in the following cases:…
