Catastrophic Insurance 危疾保險10 Jan, 2014

Message from Executive Vice-President (Administration and Finance)

Catastrophic Insurance 危疾保險 

Dear Colleagues,

A Happy New Year to you.

I am pleased to inform you that we have negotiated with Bupa a catastrophic insurance coverage for all staff members who are eligible for hospitalisation benefits under the University's Staff Medical Benefits Scheme, effective from January 1, 2014.

Details of the coverage can be viewed at the UHS website, under the link below:


One of the key features of this plan is the guarantee transfer option to staff members upon leaving the University to the Bupa CarePro Scheme with pre-existing conditions covered and lifelong renewal guaranteed.

We have invited the representatives of Bupa to give an overview of the features of the catastrophic insurance plan. The Director of UHS and representatives from Finance and Enterprises Office will explain how this plan is going to supplement the University's coverage.

Details of the briefing sessions are as follows:

Session 1 (in Cantonese)

Date: January 20, 2014 (Monday)
Time: 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Venue: Room 419, 4/F, Knowles Building

Session 2 (in English)

Date: January 27, 2014 (Monday)
Time: 1 pm to 2:00 pm
Venue: LE 6, Library Extension

You are welcome to attend the briefing to get a better understanding of this enhancement of your medical benefits coverage. To facilitate our logistic arrangements, please register your attendance through the HKU Event Management System at:

This plan will not affect the existing the top-up medical insurance plan provided by Liberty which will continue to operate until August 31, 2014. Bupa will offer a voluntary top-up plan on comparable terms in the coming academic year. Details will be provided nearer the time.

Enquiries on the catastrophic plan can be directed to the University Health Service at 2859 2501 or Bupa at 2517 5388.

With best wishes,

Dr. Steven Cannon
Executive Vice-President
(Administration and Finance)
