Recently, Alipay has integrated with the healthcare system and issued electronic certificates (医保电子凭证) in 11 cities in Zhejiang including Hangzhou, Ningbo and Wenzhou. Residents from the said cities can activate the digital social security cardand access the national healthcare scheme via the APP.

With just a click of the button, the digital version, which works the same as a physical one, saves time waiting in line to make doctor appointments and pay off medical bills in over 4,000 hospitals, such as in Jiaxing Hospital, Huzhou Central Hospital and Lishui People's Hospital.

It also makes possible the purchase of any medication that is non-prescribed in a total of 10,000 pharmacies in the aforementioned cities, without bringing an actual card.
