Compare Top 10 2020 Health Insurance Singapore Rates


We often read about the ever rising costs of healthcare in Singapore. Most of just shake our heads and thank our lucky stars that we’ve never had to go through major surgery or fight off a life-threatening illness.

Yet, every Singaporean can recount a tale of a relative or a friend who struggled to pay their medical bills when they fell ill. It is hard to imagine when we’re young, fit and healthy, of a day when we might fall sick and be unable to work. But what happens then? Should the day come when you find yourself ill and unable to work.

That’s where health insurance comes in. Health insurance is a shield that allows you to protect yourself and your loved ones from the threat of ruined health leading to ruined wealth, removing the financial burden from yourself when you’re ill and allowing yourself to focus on recovering without having to worry about money. This is also the most important insurance coverage that everyone should have.

How Much Cover Should I Get?

There are however some factors that you may want to take into account.

Are you the sole breadwinner in your family?
Do you have any history of medical illnesses in your family?
What kind of financial impact would it have on you, if you weren’t able to work for a prolonged period?
Should you be unable to look after yourself, is there anyone who could act as a caregiver?

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

It very much depends on your policy, some insurers cover treatment in a few countries, while others may only cover health insurance locally.

Riders are additional options you may choose to take up with your insurance policy that offer additional protection/ benefits on top of what is included in your health insurance policy for an additional premium. Common riders include daily cash benefits for hospitalization and ability to go to seek treatment in a private hospital instead of a public one.

The premium payable depends on a number of factors such as your percentage of coverage, health status, age, etc.

You are usually allowed to choose your preferred payment frequency: one-time, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually.

This will vary from policy to policy. Some health insurance policies ensure that cover is provided perpetually as long as premiums are paid on time. Having said that, your benefits may change when your health insurance policy is due for renewal.
In other policies, insurers may reserve the right to terminate cover after a major medical claim. There are also short term health insurance policies, such as those provided as part of employment benefits that may cease when you stop working for the employer.

In general, there are four situations that may end your health insurance policy namely, reaching the maximum age in your policy, receiving the maximum benefits under the policy, insurer cancelling cover and failing to pay premiums.
