Medical Insurance

Medical Insurance mainly covers the hospitalisation costs incurred on a cost reimbursement basis. The policy is renewed annually with premium based on attained age of the insured. Most products have coverage limits on certain cost categories, while some products are based on “full coverage” structure. We compare the products based on the coverage ratios under different common medical scenarios, the medical expenses of which are adjusted accordingly based on the room type (ward/ semi-private/ private room) admitted at a Hong Kong private hospital.
Below are the 3 types of medical insurance:
  • Voluntary Health Insurance Scheme (VHIS): The VHIS policyholder can enjoy tax deductions on premium paid. The VHIS Standard plan is based on the minimum standards prescribed by the government. The VHIS Flexi plan is built upon the Standard plan by providing higher coverage through higher benefit limits or adding supplementary major medical coverage.
  • Medical Insurance: It covers medical expenses for various ward classes and different geographical regions such as Asia, Global excluding US.
  • International Medical Insurance: It covers medical expenses globally. Most of the plans offer "full coverage" on most individual medical expense categories with an overall annual limit. Designed for people who prefer the best-in-class medical services in private hospitals.

Mass Market Medical Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between medical insurance and critical illness insurance?

While both is often categorised under “health insurance”, they are very different in nature.

Medical insurance is also known as hospitalisation insurance. The main purpose is to cover the medical expenses if the insured is hospitalised, with some products also covering specific outpatient treatments. Claims are on an expense reimbursement basis, on the condition that the expense is “Medical Necessary”.

Critical illness insurance covers the insured against specified diseases. A lump sum benefit is paid if the insured is diagnosed with a specified disease that matches the definition in the policy provisions. In general, insurance companies do not limit the usage of the benefit payment.

How dose traditional medical insurance work? What is a “Full Coverage” product?

Traditional medical insurance defines coverage limits item by item, e.g. room and board, surgeon fee, miscellaneous fee, etc… If the medical expense on particular item exceeds the limit, one may recover the excess from Supplementary Major Medical (if available, and after any co-payment), and any further excess needs to be paid out-of-pocket by the insured.

“Full Coverage” medical insurance generally does not limit the coverage amount in a single item. The medical expense can be covered as long as it does not exceed the per policy year, per disability or lifetime limit. However, the relevant medical expense needs to be “Medical Necessary” and “Reasonable and Customary”.

What is deductible?
The deductible is what the amount the insured needs to pay out-of-pocket first, while the insurance company covers the medical expense in excess of the deductible. For example, for a policy with a $10,000 deductible, if the eligible medical expense $50,000 the insurance company would only pay $40,000.
