What if I had an emergency condition and was unable to consult UHS physicians for a referral?
If you have an emergency condition, you are advised to attend the Accident and Emergency Department of any public hospital. You may then send in the receipt for such consultations with a completed reimbursement application form explaining the reason for the emergency consultation. All information submitted will be treated confidentially.
With effect from 18 June 2017, the University will reimburse $180 per visit to the Accident and Emergency Departments in any HA hospitals for all eligible users. Users should make the full payment to the HA first and apply for reimbursement of the $180 by submitting the receipt to UHS within 3 months of the visit.
