The goal of this paper is to shed light on whether and how different health insurance schemes affect the agricultural migrants’ income and income distribution. A dataset of 89506 individuals is obtained from China Migrants Dynamic Survey (2017). The study uses OLS regression and quantile regression to analyzes the average effect and the heterogeneous effects on income redistribution. The results show that Urban Employees Basic Medical Insurance (UEBMI) and Urban Residents Basic Medical Insurance (URBMI) have significantly increased income of agricultural migrants, while New Cooperative Medical Scheme (NCMS) and Basic Medical Insurance for Urban and Rural Residents (BMIURR) do not. The income-increasing effect of UEBMI is greater than that of URBMI. And the income-increasing effect of UEBMI reflects the “pro-poor effect”. While the phenomenon of “target shifting” is found in the effect of URBMI.
