    Best Maternity Insurance Coverage in HK

    What is the best maternity insurance in HK?

    We currently have AIA. I called about their maternity benefits and the silver plan covers $25K for vaginal delivery and $40K for c-section. The Gold Plan is $39,250 for vaginal and $65K for c-section.

    Both of these plans do not seem like a lot of coverage considering it costs OVER $100K to delivery privately in HK. Is there supplemental maternity insurance one can get?

    I know IHI gives US$10000 per pregnancy and that is supposed to be top already...actually that covered 80% of my delivery. only with problems with my pregnancy did the final cost come to HK130K....I delivered in a private room in Matilda.

    I just signed up with HealthCare International on the Premium Plan and they cover routine pregnancy costs up to USD$25,000 and cover 100% of all costs associated with pregnancy complications.

    I did a lot of research into different insurance plans, and HealthCare International offered the best maternity benefits by far.

    Having just had a baby via c-section without health insurance, I am wanting to be fully covered for the next pregnancy and the majority of insurance plans barely cover 50% of the costs which is ridiculous considering the premiums they charge.

    I am paying about USD$230 per month and there is a 12 month waiting period before I can make a maternity related claim.

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has put in a claim for Healthcare International and can give feedback on their service. Besides maternity benefits, they seem to have good comprehensive hospital and outpatient plans too.

    Hi Lozz83,

    I am just wondering if you've had the happy chance to make a claim on the HealthCare International? If so, which hospital did you use, and did you happen to? Does anyone know if insurance packages will reimburse for Annerley Midwives as well?

    Thanks very much everyone!

    I haven't put in a claim with Healthcare Int'l but there was another member who has. Have a read through this thread.

    Health insurance with the best maternity plan in HK?

    I remember Annerley saying you can claim their packages/

    I think the best coverage for private hospital is A-plus. I rem it's about 20~k per year. More expensive if you want to cover hospital care in the USA.
