Manulife Hong Kong has announced the expansion of its Designated China Hospital Network from 1,700 to over 3,000 listed hospitals across mainland China.
This means that Manulife has the most extensive coverage across the country and is the first life insurance company in Hong Kong to provide its customers with a network that covers all of China's Grade III public hospitals.
The expansion aims to meet the growing demand for health and protection services following the full reopening of borders between Hong Kong and mainland China.
Manulife’s network now covers all Grade IIIB and IIIC public hospitals, in addition to the previous coverage of all Grade IIIA public hospitals. Located in almost 300 mainland cities, these hospitals have experienced medical staff, professional specialist care, and advanced medical equipment.
In addition, the expanded network covers a selection of Grade I and Grade II public hospitals, as well as private hospitals, providing customers with access to comprehensive medical services with extra geographical convenience. It offers a wide range of services including acute injuries treatment, vaccination arrangements, preventive care, chronic disease management, specialist care services, rehabilitation, traditional Chinese medicine treatment, and medical check-ups.
Carrie Tong, Chief Operations Officer of Manulife Hong Kong and Macau, said: “We are proud to be the first life insurer in the market to cover all Grade III public hospitals in our expanded network.”
She added: “The expansion demonstrates our strong commitment to catering to the diverse healthcare needs of customers residing in, or travelling to, mainland Chinese cities, offering them access to a wide range of medical specialties and treatment options.”
