Hong Kong Healthcare Costs

Hong Kong is able to deliver some of the highest quality healthcare in the world. The city possesses an abundance of superior medical facilities and globally leading hospitals which are on par with the standards of care associated with the USA and Western Europe.

However, the cost of healthcare treatment in Hong Kong continues to rise rapidly. At current rates of medical inflation, Hong Kong will soon rival the USA as the world’s most expensive location for medical care.

Hong Kong is currently experiencing a high level of economic buoyancy and this is driving more and more people to seek a higher standard of private healthcare. As a result of this increased demand, the availability of high quality private medical treatment has become limited, and this in turn has served to increase the overall costs of private healthcare in Hong Kong.

Unfortunately for healthcare consumers, these increased costs of medical treatment are now being passed down in the form of increased medical insurance premiums.

Hong Kong is currently listed as the second most expensive place in the world to receive medical treatment after the USA, and the costs associated with medical treatment in Hong Kong are likely to continue to rise in the short term.
