Having not participating in the yearly inspection, 24 medical institutions in Xi'an have had their qualifications as designated medical insurance institutions revoked.
Twenty-eight drugstores have also either have had their licenses revoked or been asked to rectify their businesses within a given period of time.
In the annual audit of the city's more than 160 designated medical institutions, Xi'an Labor and Social Security Bureau found that four of them were offering unqualified services. XLSSB deducted 10% of the four's quality deposit and asked them to rectify themselves within three months. In addition, XLSSB found that 24 medical institutions had not participated in the annual inspection and hence cancelled their qualifications as designated medical insurance units.
After a sudden check on the city's over 300 drug retailers that have been designated to serve the urban employees' medical needs, XLSSB found that 28 of them had violated the relevant medical insurance policies. XLSSB revoked the qualification of ten drug stores that had illegally sold food and life necessities, terminated their service agreements and deducted three months of quality deposit. Eighteen drug stores were criticized for selling healthcare products to IC card holders — they were asked to stop their card-sweeping service for six months, rectify their business during the period and were deducted three months' quality deposit.
