由80年代至今香港醫療技術不斷進步,已經有8間或以上私家醫院服務香港人。與此同時人口老化問題日益增長,公立醫院每日睇急症老人家都非常多,更出現住院床位不足的嚴重問題。

到底在香港是否真的有需要買一份醫療保險自用?可以留意以下幾點:

1) 普遍睇急症市民經醫生觀察後會再轉介睇專科醫生,當然唔同病況會轉介睇唔同類型專科。最常見腸胃科都已經要排期等候2-3年,若果是老人家可能會快一點,那麼年輕人/成年人就要等2-3年後才知道自己病症嗎?若果本身有醫療保險便可以馬上經醫生轉介入院做醫療檢查去對症下藥。

2) 公立醫院每次診症180元,基本上每個人都能夠負擔到。若不幸確診是癌症,便需要用上標標靶藥作治療。標靶藥治癒每月洗費四萬至六萬,一年療程已接近五十萬至七十萬。普遍標靶藥治癒往往能夠大大提高病人生存率,所以很多人希望用到。

3) 基本上病情唔嚴重或老人家,都需要等候排期。普遍早期癌症或原位癌都不會有太大影響或痛楚而發現,所以很難會認清病徵。大部份都需要做醫療檢查例如磁力共振或電腦素描才發現,所以很多人會把醫療保險當作每年身體檢查,保障自己健康。當然是感覺到身體有任何不適的情況下便立即到私家醫院。

4) 公立醫院基本上是自動安排當值醫生給你,沒有選擇。私家醫院就可以自己揀選醫生就醫。當然醫療保險是可以在公立醫院和私家醫院用。每位市民當然都有權去選擇自己的主診醫生。

Answer:

總括而言是否需要買醫療保險最終都是由你自己決定是否有這需要,畢竟中介人只能夠講解產品特點和理念給你。你的生活與家人的生活都互相影響帶動發展將來,所以自己的人生計劃仍是由你自己去決定。以上的文章分享只是講解醫療保險實際用處,不同公司的產品都各有特色,你只需按自己要求去揀選就可以了。希望對大家有一點點幫助更清楚明白。
