DH alerts public to fraudulent advertisements on government medical insurance
     The Department of Health (DH) today (May 31) alerted members of the public to fraudulent advertisements published on social media and online platforms about free medical insurance provided by the Hong Kong Government.

     The fraudulent advertisements, carrying the DH logo, claimed that the Government will provide free medical insurance for persons aged 55 or above. The DH clarified that it has never published, or authorised the publishing of, such advertisements, adding that all the remarks in the advertisements are fictitious. The DH has reported the case to the Police.
     Anyone who has provided his or her personal information to any suspicious websites or unknown persons via the advertisements should contact the Police.
