Hong Kong outpatient health insurance plans are designed to protect you against the costs of medical treatment where an overnight stay in a hospital is not medically necessary.
Outpatient health insurance coverage in Hong Kong is usually purchased as an addition to an Inpatient Medical Insurance policy. This means that, in order to obtain an outpatient coverage benefit, your Hong Kong health insurance plan must already include inpatient protection.
Outpatient protection in Hong Kong may not be suitable for everyone, especially considering the relatively low costs associated with visiting your local General Practitioner and Family Practitioner. However, families with children may get real use out of such coverage as it can make those every day check-ups and doctor’s visits relatively painless, especially if the plan includes a direct settlement network.
While the costs of outpatient treatment will be much lower than those of inpatient care, you will normally receive more outpatient treatment over the course of any given year, and the total expense can quickly add up. If you are concerned about routine healthcare services, and would like to access higher cost GPs and FPs, then you should consider including outpatient coverage under your Hong Kong health insurance policy.
Outpatient coverage benefits are designed to make your day-to-day healthcare experiences easy, simplifying the process of going to the doctor when you need to and ensuring that you don’t have to worry about the bill when you get sick.
