Huawei has launched a new beta version of the Wallet application, which will allow users to test an early version of the virtual medical insurance card business.
According to the information, this virtual medical insurance card feature is jointly developed by Huawei Wallet, the National Government Service platform, and the National Medical Security Administration of China.
It is worth mentioning that the current public beta is only supported by smartphones with NFC, while other models will open in subsequent versions. Further inputs reveal that the electronic social security card is an effective electronic certificate for the online application of social security.
It is designed for one-to-one use cases and uniquely mapped to the physical social security card. This service is issued by the national social security card platform and managed by the Chinese Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security.
Similar to a physical social security card, the electronic social security card is unified and universal throughout the country and has the features such as identity certificates, information records, self-service inquiries, medical insurance settlements, payment and benefit collections, and financial payments.
Huawei wallet allows you to conduct digital transactions on smartphones and terminals. Aside from transactions, the app allows you to add your loyalty cards, gift cards, and coupons. You can instantly add your bank card to pay in-store with just a tap or scanning the bar code.
