This chapter discusses the creation of the national health insurance (NHI). It considers the economic conditions of medical practice in the preceding quarter of a century which help explain why general practitioners joined this new scheme in such (unexpectedly) large numbers. The economic and medical framework of the NHI provided powerful and growing pressure for increased uniformity. The detailed rules and regulations administered by national insurance commissioners resulted in a convergence in panel practice and, following from that, in general practice, because the majority of practices ultimately recruited a panel of patients.
