Whoops! You meant medical exam. Sorry. You probably won't need one from the UK, and if you do, the TB and HIV exam, plus the other exam will cost $75 to $100... what I paid when I became PR.

I 'forced' this company into posting me to Singapore, as I really wanted to move to Asia and I wanted to get out of the UK. Because they 'did me a favour' by letting me work out of Singapore, I am covering the costs of the move.
It depends. You can buy local medical insurance which is quite inexpensive, and like all med insurance, costs vary for such things as private room, outpatient care, etc.
This med insurance will not cover you outside of Singapore. You can cover this through a good travel policy (I had used AIG for my employees). This covered emergency care and evacuation.
This type of insurance normally won't cover you in your home country. You may want to take a look at an expat policy which covers you in home country, resident country, as well as travel and evacuation. For UK as a home country, this policy is quite reasonable, much more expensive for someone who has a home country in the US.
Not affiliated, etc, but you could look at GlobalHealth or just key in 'expat medical insurance' into Goggle.
