comprehensive medical insurance

Post by bostonT2 » Fri, 26 Jun 2009 5:11 pm

Aloha crew,

I accidentally opted out of my company provided medical insurance (yes, dont ask)....Can any of you recommend a site i can do medical insurance comparisons? Is there such a thing in SG?

If not, can you recommend me any company if you have lived in SG long and get your medical insurance on your own.

Thanks,
T

Hi - I've been using this company for the past couple of years for our medical insurance (we are not on my husband's policy).

Tel: (+852) 3588 2927

Although he is based in HK I've not had any issues with my provider and he gave me a very thorough overview of about 10 different providers and the costs involved. There were no hidden costs - they were the same quoted to me from the actual provider (I checked).

On a side note I'd been with Good Health for about 4 years in Asia and found the same coverage through InterGlobal for much less and they pay the claims almost straight away and no issues.

I suggest you opt back in to your company medical insurance. It would be your cheapest alternative.

If you are a PR in Singapore already, just upgrade your existing medishield with a private insurer and it should cover big ticket medical expenses such as hospital bills etc.

Personally, you dont really need to buy any medical insurance for small ticket medical expenses such as normal visits to the doctor for flu etc.

I'm with both replies - opt back in if you can. If you cannot, the people at Kwiksure in Hongkers are great. Mr. P
