There’s a lot to think about when moving to Hong Kong. You’ll want to spend your time exploring the vibrant culture, bustling centre and local street markets, rather than worrying about your healthcare options. Our global health insurance can take the pressure off and provide reassurance at this busy and exciting time.
With all our cover levels, you can get treatment in any hospital in Hong Kong. To make it easier for you, you can take a look at our AXA Select hospital network, where we can pay the costs directly for you. If you need to choose a family doctor, you can use the Hong Kong Primary Care Directory to look up doctors’ fees, qualifications, specialisations and more. Wherever you choose to go, you’ll be covered straight away.
When moving somewhere new, it’s the small things that really make a difference. Whether that’s a doctor who speaks your language or shorter waiting times, private medical insurance can make it easier to find the care you need. For extra support, we’re also available 24/7, so if you have any questions about your cover, all you need to do is get in touch.
Private healthcare in Hong Kong is among the most expensive in the world¹. Treating a broken ankle could cost £6,415² - this could pay for 4 months’ rent in a one bed city centre apartment³. But with our global health plans, we’ve got this covered. It’s not always straightforward to get a routine appointment like a dental check-up. You can only be seen at a public clinic in an emergency, so it’s good to know you can choose a plan that covers your dental appointments, to make sure you’re not left with a large dental bill.
We’ll be there to provide vital support whenever you need it. All our plans include cover for ambulance transport, overnight stays, and surgery. And, if you can’t access the treatment you need locally, we’ll get you to where you need to be, and back again once you’re feeling better. We know an evacuation can be expensive, that’s why we don’t take the costs out of your overall benefit allowance.
Dental care is not covered by the state in Hong Kong. You can choose to cover routine care from check-ups to fillings, as well as treatment for accidental damage to your teeth.
You can ask our friendly customer service team any questions you have about your cover, from checking something is covered to making a claim. They’re here for you 24/7 by phone or online.
You have a team of medical professionals at the end of the phone, day and night, to help answer your medical questions.
If you need any diagnostic tests, including blood tests or scans we can cover these costs. You can also get the costs of any prescription drugs covered too, so you can focus on getting better.
If you develop a chronic condition after you join, you can choose a plan which will cover you for any check-ups, surgery and medication you need.
Our plans are designed to cover treatment of conditions you develop after you join. For details about what our plans do and don’t cover, visit our plan details page.
If you’re living or working internationally for less than a year, take a look at our short term health insurance plan. It gives you all the benefits of our Standard cover level, but for a shorter time. So whether you’re only away for a few months, still weighing up your options or you want cover while you apply for your local state healthcare system, our short term plan could be ideal.
Need to talk to a doctor but don’t speak the local language? Or just struggling to find time for that appointment in your busy schedule? When you live or work abroad, accessing healthcare isn’t always easy. But with our new online doctor service, now available as part of our international health plans, you can speak to an experienced, internationally qualified doctor - at a time and place that suits you.
