Have you upgraded to a private shield plan yet?

What did our Health Minister do right to minimize the cash outlay from his pocket?

Mr Khaw upgraded from the basic MediShield plan to a private shield plan with a rider.

The private shield plan is a ‘as charged’ plan. This means the bulk of his medical bill is reimbursed and YES, you can have inflation-proof medical care.

On top of this, the rider covers both the deductible and the co-insurance so that the first dollar of your medical bill could be covered.

Do note that insurance companies impose some limits to the amount of claims we can make. Hence you may still need to pay a bit but the cash outlay from YOUR pocket would be minimized.

Mr Khaw said it best on his blog, “Health insurance, as a protection against hospitalisation (MediShield) and severe disability (ElderShield), is an important pillar of our 3Ms health financing framework. It makes sure that all Singaporeans have access to high quality healthcare. They are like our umbrellas for rainy days, or thunderstorms, or even typhoons.

So have you upgraded your basic umbrella (Medishield plan) to a bigger umbrella, a private shield plan YET?

Most importantly, ask yourself, “What do you want to happen when you fall sick?
