The South Korean government will raise monthly healthcare insurance payments by three.two percent next year.
The health ministry says it set the rate on Thursday, raising the monthly average from roughly 92 U.S. dollars to 95 dollars for workers.
The fee for regional subscribers will go up from 72 to 74 dollars a month.
The hike is the biggest increase in eight years.
The government has said, starting this year, it plans to raise healthcare payment rates by an average of around three-and-a-half percent every year until 2022.
