HONG KONG, CHINA                      



Hong Kong has many private hospitals, but not all have an outpatient department, which means they are not suitable for emergency treatment. Private health care is also quite expensive, so many expatriates insist on having health insurance included in their employment packages. Doctors and hospitals generally do not accept credit cards and require immediate cash payment for health services.

All Hong Kong's public hospitals and government clinics are available to everyone, but services and facilities are strictly no frills and you may have to wait long hours while more urgent cases are dealt with. Fees in public hospitals and clinics are subsidized. Patients in general wards of public hospitals are charged HK$68 a day, a fee that includes food, accommodation, tests, medicine and surgery. A consultation at a general outpatient clinic costs HK$37, while a specialist consultation costs HK$44 per session.

For ambulance service, dial 999 and a government ambulance will take the patient to the nearest emergency facility or a private hospital if time allows.
