Health Insurance for an Expat

Postby JWilliamson » Fri, 04 Jun 2010 3:56 pm

Hello, Im originally from the United states and i have just moved to Singapore (last year). Im in need of a health insurance plan that includes dental. I have read and been told about 2 brokers (one is located here in Singapore) that can offer me what im looking for. Has anyone every heard or had a plan from Globalsurance or Pacific Prime? Thanks for any information, JW.

I was told by a broker here that a package that includes dental costs so much it's better just to pay the dental out of pocket. But then I have good teeth so hopefully I won't have to pay much out of pocket :D :D :D

I have two packages: one from my husband's employer that covers basic doctors visits and outpatient stuff up to S$2000/year and another that covers A&E and inpatient stuff with no upward limit. The second package is a special "expat" package that gets anyone here on a work visa onto the national healthcare scheme at a very decent rate. I can't tell you the names of the providers offhand (it's all pretty new) but if you pm me I'll look it all up in detail for you.

medical insurance with a dental plan

Postby JWilliamson » Mon, 07 Jun 2010 11:18 am

Thanks for the info, i do have a dental plan through my wifes insurance she has from her employer but its limited to a certain amount. One root canal and a cavity repair will put me over the limit. My friend has a dental plan through Globalsurance which he says is very reasonable. Im looking into it because my teeth needs a lot of work. ill give you a call soon thank you, JW

Just fly to Thailand mate... you'll get top notch service for a fraction of the price and you can turn it into a nice holiday.
