“Full five consecutive years from: …” is showed at the end of the health insurance card for those who have contributed health insurance for 05 consecutive years. If the health insurance card does not record  or information showed in the health insurance card is wrong, participants can contact to the social insurance department where issued to be adjusted.

  1. The last 10 digits in the health insurance code is the social insurance code

Participants can use this code to look up information about their contribution period. Each participant has only one social insurance code and no change unless there are changes from the social insurance department.
