Hong Kong - Health Insurance Companies
Hong Kong has fantastic hospitals and doctors. One word of advice is to figure out how your insurance works before you have an emergency. Many people have to pay and then are reimbursed by their insurance company later. The hospitals and doctors will want money UP FRONT. A lady I know moved here and two weeks later took her husband to the emergency room because his appendix had burst. On the way to the hospital she was pleading with the credit card company to increase her limit so the husband would be able to receive treatment. The private hospitals (the only ones you will want to go to) require payment immediately, so be prepared! I have BUPA medical insurance and most hospitals accept my card as if I’d paid them cash.Find out what is expected with your insurance.
