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:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
