⚠️ In Chinese hospitals and emergency rooms you usually have to pay first before receiving any tests or treatment. In International hospitals you pay when you are checking out.  Hospitals in China usually don’t accept medical insurance. The people are asked to post a deposit prior to admission which would cover the expected cost of treatment. The costs could be later recovered by the insurance. In Beijing & Shanghai, many hospitals will accept use of credit cards for payment. However, credit cards will not work in smaller cities. Foreigners could face difficulties in Chinese hospitals due to cultural, language, and regulatory differences. Sometimes, the hospitals could refuse to give the foreign patients complete copies of their hospital medical records. The medication could also be different from the medication used in your own country.  Emergency rooms are by law required to admit anyone who is critically injured, even without pre-payment. Depending on the circumstances, it may be quicker to get to a hospital by taxi than calling for an ambulance. You might want to call the emergency number of your hospital first to get medical advice on the condition. This way you can also let them know that you are coming and what the condition is.
