I was about 45 and generally very active and in good health and was hit by a medical issue out of the blue. It took about 6-8 months from Day1 and the initial ambulance to IC, warding with seemingly every test and treatment known to man, inpatient then later outpatient rehab.variable wrote:that is what actually sometimes keeps me up at night. im a relatively healthy 40yr old. but im creeping up to just that scenario
All in the bill was about euro200k (S$320k). Luckily I was covered under my wife's insurance during that posting abroad. I still had to fund it all upfront, to later get about 75% rebated: But if that had have happened here in SG I'd have been without any coverage at all. A sobering thought.
