More than 120,000 foreigners have subscribed to China's social security system so far, Hu Xiaoyi, China's vice minister of human resources and social security, said on 10th September 2012.

Hu said at a press conference that local governments have been actively promoting the work since China offered to cover foreign employees by its social safety net last year.

The social insurance scheme that took effect Oct. 15 last year allows foreigners with work permits in China to receive the same retirement, unemployment, medical, work injury and maternity benefits as Chinese citizens.

The ministry has maintained communication with foreign organizations and enterprises in China to solve problems in the detailed implementation of the scheme, he said.

The ministry is also negotiating with 13 countries and regions on bilateral social insurance agreements, Hu added.

There are more than 200,000 foreigners with work permits living in China, according to the ministry.

There is no doubt that you can only see doctors at several local hospitals, and face language problems. So you might interested in our Beijing health insurance plans.
