Medical and Health Tips Before China Travel
Make sure you are in good health before traveling to China. It is very important to get all immunizations and other precautions to avoid illness. Bring along a copy of your medical record. For those who take special medicine on a regular basis, make sure that you carry an adequate supply. If you join a tour group, your tour guide or travel agency may also be able to provide assistance with medical problems.
Medical and Health Tips When Travelling in China
Travelers in China most often experience colds and sore throats. Due to the change in diet and atmosphere many travelers experience diarrhea and constipation. If you are normally prone to these conditions or other digestive or gastric problems you should bring an adequate supply of medicine with you, even if common in your home country as there is no guarantee it will be available in China. The same can be true of headache or migraine medication.

Tips for Medical Service in China
Medical standards and availability can be highly dependant on what part of the country you are in. Western style medical facilities with international staffs are available in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and a few other large cities. Even in these cities it is advisable, however, not to rely on the ambulance service. In the event of an accident the best policy is to take a taxi to the hospital. These feature reasonably up-to-date medical technology and physicians who are both knowledgeable and skilled. Most VIP wards also provide medical services to foreigners and have English-speaking doctors and nurses. Most hospitals in China will not accept medical insurance. Travellers will be asked to post a deposit prior to admission to cover the expected cost of treatment. Many hospitals in major cities may accept credit cards for payment.

For sure, we buy tourism insurance for all our clients. I’ve sent a detailed insurance items in your email, please check. The medical system in China now is developped, please don't worry. But if your company buys the insurance already, then you can choose to drop Chinese insurance.
