香港基督教教牧醫療福利計劃

簡介

主辦機構
「香港基督徒醫生及牙醫團契」(Hong Kong Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship)
源起
「香港基督徒醫生及牙醫團契」(Hong Kong Christian Medical and Dental Fellowship 下稱「團契」),有感於教牧同工在教會及機構中事奉,盡心竭力,經常忙得不可開交,有時連有病看醫生的時間也付不上。若是小毛病還可以熬過去,但若有甚麼重一點的病,失診做成的後果可以是十分嚴重的。
但要看專科醫生,公立的往往需時長久,私立的又怕費用高昂。「團契」的醫生們有感於上帝讓他們有一個專業資格去貢獻社會。而平日在屬靈上都是受惠教牧人員的牧養,況且若教牧人員在健康上有更好的照顧,對整個教會的祝福定必更大。
為此「團契」與「香港醫院院牧事工聯會」(下稱「聯會」),合作推行「香港基督教教牧醫療福利計劃」(下稱「醫牧」)。
目標
參與「醫牧」的醫生本著愛神和愛人的原則,以專業來服侍人。在醫療方面,會提供一個高水平、負責任的專科醫療服務;在收費方面,以不牟利為原則,以使求診者在經濟上的負擔減到最低。在 2009 年起,參與醫牧的醫生共有 33 位,有內科、外科、腎科、心臟科、骨科、腦科、眼科、耳鼻喉科、兒科、精神科、婦產科、牙科、全科、家庭醫學專科等。「醫牧」會繼續邀約基督徒醫生參與。
實行
凡願意參與「醫牧」的教牧,只要透過「聯會」網頁下載申請表格,填妥後傳真或電郵致聯會,經批核後,「團契」會向每一位參加者(教牧及其家屬)發出証件。不收任何費用 。

Introduction

Origin

The Hong Kong Christian Medical & Dental Fellowship (hereinafter referred to as the Fellowship) has been concerned with the health maintenance of the pastoral staff ministering in church and organization. It is not unusual to find a pastoral staff in his/her demanding ministry not being able to get medical treatment at times of physical illness. What may appear to be minor illness can sometimes lead to a more serious health crisis if the symptom is ignored or overlooked.

In reality, however, there is a dilemma in getting specialized medical services: Either a long waiting time for public service or a high charge for private service. The members of the Fellowship are thankful to God for granting us opportunities to serve the society; and they want to show their gratefulness to their ministers for their pastoral and spiritual care. We also believe that better monitoring of their health is a great blessing of the churches.

Therefore, the Fellowship joins hands with the Association of Hong Kong Hospital Christian Chaplaincy Ministry (AHKHCCM) in this MBSCPS project.

Mission

Service members of the MBSCPS are committed to serving the pastoral staff with professionalism and in Christian love. We will provide high quality and responsible specialized medical service. We operate under the non profit-making principle. As of 2009, we have a total of 32 medical doctors participating as service members. Their specializations are dentistry, internal medicine, surgery, general practice, nephrology, cardiology, E.N.T, ophthalmology, orthopedics, neurology, paediatrics, gynaecology, psychiatry. We will invite more Christian doctors to join in as our fellow service members.

Implementation

All serving outlets are members of the Fellowship. Any pastoral staff who wishes to join the MBSCPS can register through the AHKHCCM. After an applicant's status has been verified, we will issue a MBSCPS card and send the MBSCPS doctors' list to him/her and his/her family members. No fees will be charged for registration.

Target
  • Full-time pastoral staff of Hong Kong churches / Christian organizations.
  • Full-time teaching staff of Hong Kong seminaries.
  • Full-time students of Hong Kong seminaries.
  • Missionaries.
  • Full-time Hospital chaplains
  • Participants' spouse and children who are under 21 years of age.
Coverage

The scheme covers general consultation and medications only. In case of need for surgery and hospitalization, the rate and charges have to be discussed with the doctors/dentists. The coverage of MBSCPS is as follows:

‧general dental examination and treatments, such as teeth cleaning, filling, and extraction, but not include orthodontic and denture. ‧Specialized and general outpatient services and treatments, not including major and minor surgery as well as hospitalization.
