If you are an expat living in Asia and are female, young and/or unattached, you may not consider maternity cover to be relevant to your healthcare policy at this stage, but don’t dismiss it out of hand just because pregnancy seems a remote possibility right now.

Earlier this month the UK government announced a crackdown on so-called ‘health tourists’.

Technically, the majority of British citizens living abroad are not currently eligible for treatment on the NHS when they are visiting the UK, even if they have made National Insurance contributions for some or all of their working lives. This has long been a big bugbear for the UK expatriate community; however, this could be […]
A recent survey by Bloomberg rated Hong Kong’s healthcare system the most efficient in the world with high life expectancy (83.4 years) coupled with comparatively low state expenditure on healthcare. Most expats however, are not eligible for state-funded healthcare and have to opt for private sector treatment. As you would expect, the country’s world-class hospitals […]
