    I have my visa now so I don’t need to go to Macau to activate it. I think it’s just a trip with the students

    That depends on her country of origin. When I first moved abroad I got a long term insurance for overseas trips. It even covered max 6 weeks of holidays back home and emergency relocation to a hospital back home. Was pretty cheap, about 600 Euro per year. The maximum term you could buy was 5 years and it had the same conditions as any travel insurance.

    If OP is from some EU country than a "travel insurance" might indeed be all she needs for a year.

    Look into long stay travel insurance. Make sure they don't specifically exclude working abroad. Most require that you have been a resident of the UK for minimum 6 months prior to departure and are registered with a GP in the UK. If you are planning on staying in HK longer than 1 or 2 years you might want to look into a proper health insurance in HK.

    Give those guys a call, they'll be able to see you up with what you need.

You cannot get travel insurance to move to hk. Hk public hospitals will cover you, you are young, I wouldn’t worry about it unless you have some family health issues to be concerned about.
    How does public hospital works? How much typically?

    how much for surgery?
