    private doctor or hospital doctor?

    I want to compare the cost/savings with seeing a private doctor or seeing the hospital doctor for antenatal checkups. Does anyone know how much is the cost of antenatal care at Tsan Yuk for HKID holders? I want to compare the cost/savings. Private doctor (walking distance from apartment) is about HKD 600. But round trip taxi to Tsan Yuk is about HKD 150-175. i am going through public hospital route.

    Also, does anyone know the procedure for getting a refund? We did not get our HKID cards yet when we registered as it takes time for wife to get exit visa from China. The hospital asked us to wait until after we got our HKID but i was worried about the hospital filling up and just wanted to register immediately. So i already paid the non-eligable price of HKD 39,000. Now that we have our HKID cards, i would like the refund.

    Basic antenatal check ups at the public hospital (I go to Tsan Yuk) are free to HKID card holders. You pay ($60 or so I think) for ultrasounds, but they only give you one ultrasound, at 20 weeks. Not sure about getting a refund.
