    Do I need to buy insurance in China while I work?

    Hello there! I\'m going China with a purpose to work there for a year next month. 

    I\'m concerned about my safety there. 

    If you have any experience or personal cases, please share and give me your advice whether it\'s reasonable to go there without insurance or not?

    Accidental insurance is usually provided by the employer. Ask if he does it or not. But if you work with work permit and residence permit it\'s usually provided. As for whether you need it or not I may say that I sleep better when I have it) but never used)

    Regular medical services are rather cheap in Chinese hospital but if you need something more elaborate like surgery, then it is not cheap.Won\'t your employer provide medical insurance? if no, you shall look for some decent travel insurance policy.

    What is your general level of health like? If you have a delicate constitution and if you\'re susceptible to allergies China might be a nightmare (With the pollution/hygiene/food/etc). But if you\'re reasonable strong and brush things off fairly well, you should be OK.

    Sorry, do you mean health insurance? I worked several years already. Nothing happened, but I had health insurance just in case.
    You can call the international insurance company to buy it or ask your employer to offer it for you.
