Family Healthcare in Shanghai
China Living Tips - Health

Healthcare in ShanghaiShanghai has one of the better healthcare facilities in China compared to second and third tier cities, however, there aren't as many western medical establishments as local Chinese hospitals but keep in mind that new and improved services are rising rapidly. A great benefit for most expats is their major international insurances are accepted by many health care providers and in the case that they do not have one it is also available for purchase through a number of reputable brokers. Under any circumstance, foreigners can still go to a local facility for any medical concerns which usually is inexpensive and paid out of pocket. Another thing that expats should keep in mind is to bring any western medications that they need because most of the time those medications aren’t available locally. Also in the event of a medical emergency it is best to utilize the fastest transport available due to the fact that ambulance times are slow because Shanghai traffic doesn’t yield to these vehicles.

Yuki, Japan and Kev, California

World FriendsKev sent me a smile in February 2005 and we started to exchange emails since then. In June he visited me in Japan for 2 weeks. He was very genuine and I became attracted to him, but I was unsure about his sudden marriage proposal to me. In November, I went to California and found how much he was loved by his parents and friends, so I decided to accept his proposal. Since then I've been busy running around to obtain the fiancee visa. The visa was granted at the end of August and I moved in October and got married on December 2, 2006 at Carmel Beach church. If I didn't join World Friends, I could have never met him! I sincerely appreciate World Friends for bringing us so much love and happiness!
