Hospital bills in Singapore are constantly on the rise. Medisave Approved Integrated Insurance Plan is no longer a luxury but a necessary component of anyone’s financial health. It is very affordable and covers high sum assured.
However, if you are a foreigner working or living here, being a student, working expatriate or dependent of a Singaporean or PR, a large medical bill can create an overwhelming financial strain on you. Even if you are willing to purchase a medical insurance, the cost is normally much higher.
The good news is that effective from February 15, 2012, AIA HealthShield Gold Max, one of the popular integrated plan, is now open to foreigners at a slightly higher but affordable premium.
