Any Hong Kong taxpayer who has purchased an eligible health insurance plan (certified by the Food and Health Bureau as VHIS) can claim a tax deduction on qualifying premiums up to HK$8,000 per insured person each year. These persons must be included in the list of “specified relatives” in Inland Revenue (Amendment)(No. 8) Ordinance 2018 (which may change from time to time).

You can claim the deduction in the same tax year when the premium was paid. The deduction is available for Certified Plans with policy effective date of 1 April 2019 or later. There is no limit on the number of insured persons and/or policies claimed by each taxpayer. Policies purchased for a domestic partner, grandchild(ren) or domestic partner’s parents/children are not eligible for tax deduction.

For details about tax deduction, take a look at tax deduction FAQs (PDF, 897KB).

When you apply for an insurance policy (or make changes to your existing policy), the insurance company reviews your personal details (age, occupation, etc.), including your medical history. This is called underwriting.

To learn more about underwriting at Bupa, please visit What is underwriting?.

Some of the terms used in the policy documents of our VHIS plans are different than the terms in our other Bupa insurance plans. Take a look at our glossary(PDF, 0.18MB) to learn more.
