    Are helpers eligible for public services at QMH?

    My g-ma's helper is experiencing pain in her stomach and according to my helper she can feel lumps in her stomach. She gas been asked to go to the doctors but refuses cause she is scared she will have to undergo surgery and doesnt want to face that. I would like to suggest her to go to QMH as they will do a very thorough job but am not sure whether or not she is eligible for their public services. She will at the very least need a CT scan I think...is there anywhere she could go for a reasonable price? any idea what there insurance covers? Anybody been in the same situation?

    As long as she is here on a valid work visa she is covered, from what I understand.

    so long as she has a valid FDH visa and her HKID card, she can use the services, but the wait is a LONG time if it is not deemed urgent.

    she is eligible for public healthcare as long as she has a HKID. She just has to show her HKID at the hospital.
