Abstract

The Health Systems in Transition (HiT) profi les are country-based reports that provide a detailed description of a health system and of policy initiatives in progress or under development. HiTs examine different approaches to the organization, financing and delivery of health services and the role of the main actors in health systems; describe the institutional framework, process, content and implementation of health and health care policies; and highlight challenges and areas that require more in-depth analysis. The Republic of Korea has a National Health Insurance (NHI) system that provides health care benefits to the population. The Ministry for Health, Welfare, and Family Affairs (MIHWFA) plays a supervisory role, while the National Health Insurance Corporation (NHIC), as the single insurer, has responsibility for managing the NHI system.
