Couldn't find Hong Kong segmented out but Singapore is listed and described.

 

Singapore - International Health Care Profiles 2017

After you read the profile - Are you game in trying it?  The profile describes the system and various aspects of it.  would it fit the USA??? 

 

Any Healthcare system is only as good as what it provides, the cost of it and how they keep their cost under control and most of all IF their populace likes it, it fits their standards and needs.

 

What do you think of Singapore's system?  Likes / dislikes - Pros / Cons

The Balance: 10/10/2018 - Universal Healthcare Systems - Pros and cons of Each

 

Singapore's two-tier system is one of the best in the world. Two-thirds is private and one-third public spending. It provides five classes of hospital care. The government manages hospitals that provide low-cost or free care. It sets regulations that control the cost of the entire health care system.

 

People can buy the higher levels of deluxe care for a fee. Workers pay 20 percent of their salary to three mandated savings accounts. The employer pays another 16 percent into the account. One account is for housing, insurance, or education investment. The second account is for retirement savings. The third is for health care. The Medisave account collects 7 to 9.5 percent of income, earns interest, and is capped at the $43,500 income. More than 90 percent of the population enrolls in Medishield, a catastrophic insurance program. The Medifund pays for health costs after the Medisave and Medishield accounts are exhausted. Eldershield pays for nursing home care. Once an employee turns 40, a portion of income is automatically deposited into the account.

These Are the Economies With the Most (and Least) Efficient Health Care


Want medical care without quickly draining your fortune? Try Singapore or Hong Kong as your healthy havens.


The U.S. will cost you the most for treatment, both in absolute terms and relative to average incomes, while life expectancy of Americans -- about 79 years -- was exceeded by more than 25 countries and territories, according to an annual Bloomberg analysis in almost 200 economies.


A health-efficiency index was then created to rank those with average lifespans of at least 70 years, GDP per-capita exceeding $5,000 and a minimum population of 5 million.


Americans aren’t getting their medical money’s worth, according to each of the categories.
The U.S. had the second-highest per-capita spending on health care at $9,536.
