How to alleviate the burden of medical expenses?

We all have a risk of getting sick or injured, however, charges of private hospitals are high and would be a great burden for patients; how can we alleviate the burden of medical charges when we are in need?

You may consider applying for a voluntary health insurance scheme (VHIS) for yourself or for your family member, transferring the burden of medical expenses to insurance companies. Under VHIS, clients’ medical expenses would be reimbursed to the actual expenses at the hospital, therefore clients may share the medical expenses caused by illness and injury with the insurance company. This would reduce the pressure of paying expensive medical fees at private hospitals when patients are in need. 


1. How to search for doctors?

The doctor searching function can be found on the Union Hospital website ( ). Patients may find doctors according to the specialist services to clinical centres. Patients may also key in the name of doctors to check if the doctor is available at the Union Hospital.
