Abstract
The impact of Chinese new rural cooperative medical policy which has been implemented for nearly forty years on rural hierarchical diagnosis and treatment has been stated generally through existing related reports in the Paper. It is found that the policy cannot promote implementation of county-township-village diagnosis and treatment in the rural area. Although it has improved economic condition of medical and health institutions in villages and towns and village clinics to a certain degree, it cannot promote increase of total persons-times of medical services provided for local farmers by medical and health institutions in villages and towns or divert rural cooperative patients to medical and health institutions in villages and towns. Most of them will still select to see doctors in medical institutions of country level or above, which is of little significance to rural hierarchical diagnosis and treatment. At the same time, with reference to private insurance policy of Australia, some personal suggestions and measures for implementation of rural hierarchical diagnosis and treatment have been discussed.
