Health insurance plans for family in China?

We are coming to live in Shanghai later this year, myself and my wife and two boys aged 15 and 11, I know the air quality is bad and we have looked at buying air filters for our home and now looking at health insurance plans and would like to get a idea of the healthcare available in Shanghai for international residents.

Should we buy a health insurance plan at home that will cover us in China or is there something more specific to China and even Shanghai that can ensure we are covered for almost anything that could happen to us in Shanghai that we would be taken care of in a high quality international hospital ?

 

International healthcare can get extremely expensive anywhere in China, what you need is a health insurance plan that offers direct billing, meaning the insurance provider will settle the bill directly at hospitals such as Parkway in Shanghai.
