Introducing our new Maternity Insurance Guides for Beijing and Shanghai
Pacific Prime China, as a leading insurance broker in the region, strives to simplify insurance for its clients. That’s why, back in 2017, we have released two maternity insurance guides that focused on giving birth in Beijing and Shanghai. It’s 2019, and we believe keeping these ultra-popular guides up to date is essential for both our customers and all who are interested in knowing more about maternity costs in China.
What’s inside our new Maternity Insurance Guides?
Pacific Prime’s Maternity Insurance Guides for Beijing and Shanghai follow a similar structure, and most importantly, give answers to the same, most common maternity-related questions any expat couple in China would have:
- What is maternity insurance?
- What is the “waiting period” for maternity benefits?
- What are the top hospitals for maternity care in Beijing and Shanghai?
- What can you expect to pay for maternity care in Beijing and Shanghai?
- What is the cost of pre and post-natal care?
- What maternity insurance terms should you know?
- What is covered by the best maternity plans?
- How do you use an insurance broker such as Pacific Prime China for your advantage?
The cost of giving birth in China
In our guides, you’ll see the costs of maternity care in both of China’s major cities, including pre- and postnatal care, child delivery costs, costs of complications, newborn medical care including vaccines and baby-check ups.
Planning to welcome a new life can be so exciting, but also stressful. Having the financial means to provide the best medical care both for the mother and the baby is a crucial issue, especially in China, where most expats choose to use private hospitals due to the higher standards of service, and the ability to communicate with the staff in English. With higher standards of service come higher prices for medical care, and as such, just to give you an example of how much delivering a baby in one of the top maternity hospitals in Shanghai can cost, here’s a price list from American-Sino Shanghai Hospital:
- Prenatal Care Package 15,000 – 25,000 RMB
- Normal Delivery 45,000 – 90,000 RMB
- C-Section Delivery 70,000 – 110,000 RMB
Pacific Prime China has established close relationships with some of the best private hospitals in Shanghai, and hence we can offer our clients discounted maternity packages. For example, a 10% discount is offered through Pacific Prime for maternity packages at American-Sino Shanghai Hospital.
