Q: Chinese health insurance for foreigners, what does it cover?

Hello

I am looking for jobs in China and want to have a career here, however one thing is bothering me, the health insurance. As far as i know, if i work for a chinese company they will provide me with an insurance from a chinese insurance company. My question now is what coverage i get with this kind of insurance? would it typically be in one of the local hospitals or does it cover for going to the more upscale hospitals that most foreigners will usually go to?

Any help is very appreciated!

Ask your prospective employer for a blank copy of the policy.

Each policy is unique.

If health is an issue, China may not be right for you.

A Chinese health insurance won't cover you at the expensive expat hospitals. You will have to get an expat health insurance for those. Most expat health insurance packages provide outpatient services and emergency medical treatment. For things like dentistry, maternity etc. you'll have to pay a big chunk of money extra. Expect to pay something in the range of 5-10,000 RMB for expat cover a year.

A:I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also used several good job recruiters and I got new offers that way, too.The other (ET) jobs website is Dave's ESL Cafe, and if you'll Yahoo-gle "ESL job vacancies in China", you'll find more websites advertising ET job openings in China. You can replace 'ESL' with any job you're looking for ... Many reasons why no replies from job advertisers ... Chinese borders remain closed as one. Nobody will hire you, if you can't enter China. The other thing here is (was from 2009 - 2017), never stop sending your CV until you get an interview invitation ... In my time, I usually spoke to at least two schools in the same time and then I picked and signed the best contract .. Good luck! -- icnif77
