Moon Announces Extensive Expansion of Health Insurance Coverage

President Moon Jae-in has vowed to free the public from the burden of high medical expenses by 2022.

He made the pledge at Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital on Wednesday, while announcing the government’s plan to overhaul the national health insurance system, focused on extending the coverage of the health insurance policy to almost every illness in five years. 

Only medical services carried out for aesthetic purpose, such as cosmetic or plastic surgeries, will remain excluded from the benefits of the state health insurance program.

Moon said no one with a health problem shall be excluded from medical services due to a lack of money, and stressed that safeguarding the health and lives of the public is the most basic responsibility of the government.
