The National Health Insurance Administration yesterday announced that people can apply for new National Health Insurance (NHI) program cards at household registration offices in 19 cities and counties.
“Statistics show that approximately 440,000 identification cards and 660,000 NHI cards are lost each year, with about 300,000 people losing both yearly,” Underwriting Division official Wu Hsin (吳昕) said.
Wu said that in the past, people who lost both credentials had to go to a household registration office to get a replacement identification card and an agency office to get a new NHI card, which was a waste of time and money. [FULL STORY]
