China is a fascinating place – you have amazing food, a rich culture and friendly people. But things can be less fun if you get sick. If you’re not prepared, the language barrier and other factors like a very different healthcare system can add more stress to an already stressful situation.
So knowing who to call in an emergency, where to go for treatment and how to have yourself covered are a must before you start your China adventure – whether that's indulging in the cuisine, venturing to far flung corners of the country or setting up your new life here!
That said, figuring out which insurance to buy is also not always so straightforward. There are tons of options available – you may encounter over a hundred issuers who all promise to meet your needs. And especially if you are outside of the big cities, finding one that speaks English in terms you know and understand may also prove challenging. And how do you know that the price you're paying is reasonable?
That's why NiHao's newest feature is designed to take the hassle out of buying insurance, no matter where you live in China! Thanks to our strategic partnership with insurance experts Panoramic Insurance, you can now seek your insurance quote from directly within NiHao.
