In 2016, China implemented the urban-rural coordination of basic medical insurance. In order to judge whether farmers are satisfied with the basic medical insurance system for urban and rural residents. In this paper, Logistic regression model was used to study the satisfaction degree of urban and rural residents with basic medical insurance and its influencing factors among 513 insured farmers in 15 administrative villages in H province. The study found that five variables, including the personal characteristics of the insured farmers, the rationality of the payment and reimbursement system of medical insurance, and the perception of the insured farmers on the service of designated hospitals and pharmacies, have a significant impact on the satisfaction of the insured farmers' medical insurance system. This study has practical value in constructing and perfecting the basic medical insurance system for urban and rural residents in China.
