Abstract: The authors argued whether using Medicare Card for sports fitness, i.e. using personal account of basic medical insurance fund to pay sports fitness expenses, conforms to the stipulations of Social Insurance Law, hoping to provoke a discussion about the legitimacy of such a sports institutional arrangement, and to raise public attention to administration by law and sports governance by law after the fourth plenary session of the Party’s eighteenth con-ference. The research results indicated that using Medicare Card for sports fitness is an obvious illegal act, not au-thorized by law, and legally baseless; it violates the stipulations of Social Insurance Law about basic medical insur-ance fund payment scope, about basic medical insurance medicine catalog, treatment items and medical service fa-cility standards, about that basic medical insurance fund shall not be used for other purposes, and about basic medi-cal insurance fund payment settlement units and ways.
