Medical Insurance

Hello. I am a physician in a singapore hospital and yesterday i received a man that i will treat for a state mental impairment. Without health insurance this patient will die. Unfortunaltly he doesn't have a medical insurance. Do you have some advices to give about which health insurance will be the best for him?

Dear bevinbest,

I am sure practicing in Singapore, you are already aware that Singapore citizens and permanent residents are entitled to subsidized healthcare services provided through government healthcare facilities. I know many Singaporeans carry additional or supplemental insurance but I am told that is mostly through an employer.

There are a few private insurers where one could obtain an individual policy from, but the problem I foresee is that any insurance you try to help him obtain might look at his condition as a pre-existing one and may not cover this particular episode or benefit period. I highly recommend inquiring about exclusions and limitation upfront.

Below are some private insurer in Singapore:
• Allianz
• Aviva
• Great Eastern
• Prudential

Hello, I know that your patient is already diagnosed, but still there is insurance brokers who can probably help you. There is several actually but I will advise you to contact specifically ***@**** .     Indeed by refering your patients to Pacific Prime you will receive a commission on it. I am also a doctor and I am transferring all my patient without health insurance to them. Actually I have received like this around 7000 USD last month like this.
