Strengthening the health insurance system
The Project aimed at improving the performance of the social health insurance system in Mongolia. After the passing of the health insurance law which stipulated that the health insurance organization would be operating independently, the technical assistance team supported three aspects of the future system: 1. Defining governance aspects and training newly elected personnel to fulfill their roles in the future system; 2. Supporting the organizational development of the Health Insurance Organization to become an independent body, including the definition of additional roles, responsibilities, and resouces required; and 3. Strenghtening current capacities of the Health Insurance Organization in various aspects, e.g. cost services, the monitoring of the quality of care in faclities and the development of new, performance-based contracting mechanisms.
