HEALTH INSURANCE Note that Shenzhen local hospitals may only treat you if you can pay first. Most hospitals require payment or a deposit in cash on admission, either to the emergency department or for outpatient care. Treatment can be expensive, so it is important to have medical insurance before you come to Shenzhen.
People with chronic health conditions or who are reliant on specific medicines should make careful arrangements before travelling.

SOS is part of an international network providing comprehensive hospital services for acute patients, including evacuation. In addition to corporate packages, SOS offer short-term traveller services.
