Health Insurance tips/experiences for ex-pats

Postby mayrolllate » Fri, 27 Nov 2015 12:56 pm

Hi All,
I am looking for tips/experiences from people who have had to use health insurance companies here in Singapore before, particularly ex-pats. Which live up to their end of the bargain the best? I am not just looking for the cheapest provider, but ones that actually pay claims like they promise up front. Thank you!

Here insurance companies pay up buy ..... get familiar with the words excess, deductible, co pay etc. Exclusions etc. etc.

If you fail to get 100% claimable, you will be left to pay a lot out of your pocket.

As long as you have a pass, the local insurance companies are good, unless you need world wide coverage.

They are so good and customer friendly that they even gave you an email address (visible to admins and moderators) under their internet domain. That's really outstanding.

On more serious note, if you advertise again, you will be banned.
