Health Checkups in Hong Kong: How Much Does It Cost?
4th May 2023
If you are planning a body check and wonder how much it costs and whether your insurance covers you, you are in the right place. Alea experts tell you everything about medical checkups in Hong Kong.
1 - The basics of body checks (aka health checkups) in Hong Kong
Health checkups help you identify any potential health issue at an early stage before a problem gets worse. Plus, some diseases are not immediately visible and cannot be identified without proper screening. Therefore, even if you feel you are in good health, it is always better to get a check.
Unlike many other places, the Hong Kong public health system does not have recommendations for when various populations should undergo screening tests. Hong Kongers must get body checks in private clinics/hospitals, which are unregulated and unstandardized. Packages and costs thus vary greatly.
How often you should get a health check-up depends on your state of health, your medical history, family history of serious illness and risk factors (smoking, cholesterol…). Most people in Hong Kong get screened at important stages of their lives such as getting married, changing jobs or before conceiving. And even if there is no consensus among doctors in Hong Kong about the frequency, many physicians recommend doing a physical check every year.

2 - Are health checkups covered by health insurance?
In Hong Kong, comprehensive health insurance plans with outpatient coverage usually reimburse health check-ups.
Nevertheless, the plans set monetary and time sub-limits which can range between US$500 and $2,000. For instance, an insurance plan may cover health check-ups for up to US$1,000 every 3 years. The time limit is not systematic but frequent. Make sure to check with your insurance provider or your group medical insurance coverage before getting screened.
