Health insurance in China?

Posted by xemrac August 27, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi all, I did a search for "health insurance" on the community boards, and surprisingly didn't come up with anything.

In any case, I'm currently in the US and will be moving to Shanghai, sans job, to study Chinese for 6 months. Right now I'm looking into plans through Travel Guard, but am just wondering if anyone has any experiences or advice to share on this topic. 

How important is it to have health insurance in China? Does travel insurance "work" for regular visits to the doctors? Is it smarter to buy insurance in the US or in China?

Basically, I'm kind of clueless, and am planning to get travel insurance that includes health coverage.

Any words of wisdom are welcome!
