Consider getting cancer insurance (but you can only get it if you are youngish, healthy, and have never had cancer..).....
    Never knew that. Are there other things that they don't cover?

    This is an absurd and totally inaccurate statement, I have 2 close friends who have been treated in the HK public system for cancer (a women for breast cancer and a man for bowel cancer). The treatment was prompt and effective (at least in the sense of sending the cancer into remission - I don't think cancer is ever cured as such), and essentially free. They are still living full lives.
    Elegiaque and newhkpr like this.
