Improved Medical Benefits to CUHK Staff

CUHK staff medical benefits come under several schemes: Staff Medical Benefit Schemes (SMBS), Network Hospitals Scheme (NHS), Extra Outpatient Consultation Services Scheme (EOCSS), Voluntary Top-Up Medical Insurance Scheme (VTP) and Medical Insurance Plan for Retirees (VTP). To improve the overall benefit level and operational efficiency of the schemes and to encourage the staff members to join VTP so to make it viable in the long term, the University has approved some enhancement features to the schemes starting 1 July.

Colleagues from the Bursary, Personnel Office and the University Health Services and representatives from Jardine Lloyd Thompson Limited spoke to a full house on the latest developments of the schemes in two briefing sessions held on 11 June. The main enhancement features effective from 1 July are:

  • Removal of the monthly staff contribution requirement of HK$11.3 or HK$17 to SMBS;
  • Enhancements to the approved scale of charges under SMBS, for examples:
    - Adding coverage for daily maintenance fee at intensive care unit
    - Adding coverage for complex operations and anaesthetics for complex operations
    - Improving coverage of using labour ward for maternity deliveries from HK$4,880 to HK$20,000
  • Reopen VTP to eligible members who have never joined the scheme. Interested staff members please complete and return the application form together with the premium payment to the Payroll and Superannuation Unit of Bursary by 26 June
  • Updated list of network hospitals
  • Updated list of outpatient practitioners and payment arrangement
