Provide options to HA patients

Patients fulfilling pre-defined clinical criteria and programme requirements and who have been attending HA Outpatient Clinic for at least 12 months, will be invited for voluntary participation. Each participating patient will receive up to 10 subsidised visits per year, including medical consultations covering both chronic and episodic illnesses; drugs for treating their chronic conditions and episodic illnesses to be received directly from private doctors at their clinics; and investigation services provided by HA as specified through private doctors’ referral.  

Service fee will be paid to service providers

For service provision, participating private doctors may receive a maximum total payment of $3,510 per year (on a reimbursement basis), covering a maximum of 10 consultations, including the HA general outpatient clinics (GOPC) fee of $50 to be paid by the patients to the private doctors direct after each consultation. For eligible waiver patients, the HA will bear the GOPC fee.

Same fee as HA GOPC

Under the Programme, participating patients only need to pay the HA GOPC fee of $50 (as per Gazette) for each consultation. A participating patient who is eligible for a waiver under the criteria set out in the Notice on Waiver Arrangement in Programme’s website may enjoy the same fee waiver arrangement as for HA’s service when he/she attends the private doctors for services under the scope of the Programme.

Participating private clinics cover 18 districts

Near 600 private doctors have participated in the Programme, which covers 18 districts of Hong Kong. Patients may receive primary care service from the private sector so as to enhance the accessibility of primary care services and promote the concept of family doctor.
