MediSave and MediShield
MediSave is a national savings scheme which patients can use for themselves and dependents for dialysis treatments. Dependents are spouse, children, parents and grandparents (grandparents must be Singaporeans and Permanent Residents).
MediShield is a basic medical insurance scheme designed to help pay part of the expenses of hospitalisations and certain approved outpatient dialysis treatments.
If you are planning to use your MediSave and MediShield to pay for your dialysis treatments, we can advise and assist you with the necessary claim forms for CPF Board’s approval.
The CPF Board takes approximately two to three weeks to process your claim, as such, we require our patients to pay for their treatments first. A cheque for the claimed amount will be issued to our patients on CPF Board’s approval of their claims.
Private Medical Insurance
Patients may wish to claim the cost of their dialysis treatments from their private insurance companies. We advise our patients it’s best to check with their insurance advisors on the coverage available for their treatments beforehand.
We will collect payments from our patients first and will assist them to complete the necessary insurance claim forms for reimbursement from their insurance companies. Should the insurance company reimburse us, we will pay the received amount to our patients.
Understanding the funding available for your dialysis treatments is important and challenging. We are ready to help. Please call us at +65 6397 3360 if you would like to speak to us about it.
