The Health Secretary, Ko Wing-man, has dismissed concerns that young people will have to foot the bill for elderly people under a proposed private medical insurance scheme.

Speaking during RTHK's Hong Kong Letter, Dr Ko said the government would fund claims by high-risk groups directly from the public coffer. He said the proposed scheme would benefit young people if they join early.
