Expat health & medical insurance in Hong Kong

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 Hong Kong health insurance can take the pressure off and provide reassurance at this busy and exciting time.

Avoid waiting lists and language barriers

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.

The cost of healthcare – covered

Private healthcare in Hong Kong is among the most expensive in the world¹.  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’re by your side in an emergency

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.

Emergency and routine dental care

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.

Short term cover

Need cover for 3 to 11 months?

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.
