Looking for advice on Medical Insurance

Postby ratnasurekha » Thu, 20 Nov 2008 1:35 pm

Hi,
My name is Ratna stationed in Singapore.
My husband is working on Singapore and he is on EP (Employment pass) my self and my son of aged 2 and half years came here on dependent pass. My Husbands' mother and father (My in-laws) are also joined on and staying with us in Singapore on long-term social visit visa.
Myself and my son covered by medical insurance provided by my husband's employer.
Whereas, for my in -laws we have taken overseas travel insurance that covers for only a month.
Now that, we are looking for a long-term medical insurance that covers hospitalization, outpatient expenses and dental and vision expenses for my in-laws.
They are residents of India.
Please advice as if you would be able to provide any info on the same.

Thanks and Regards
Ratna

Do you want this for Singapore only or do you want to cover trips back home and trips elsewhere in the world? What do you want to do if you get a catastrophic illness like cancer... be treated here or go back home?

Makes a difference as to whether you want local or expat insurance... and if you choose local... several different options available.
