What do you do if you’re worried about your home being burnt down in a fire?
What do you do if you’re worried about your car being damaged in an accident or theft?
You protect yourself against catastrophic financial loss by getting insurance.
i.e. You pay a small price to the insurance firms to have the peace of mind that you’re protected financially in major unforeseen events.
Similarly, what do you do to protect yourself and your loved ones against the rising cost of medical care and potential hospitalization bills?
You get medical insurance.
Imagine in the event of unforseen medical emergency, do you have enough cash to cover for such expenses?
e.g. A medical emergency, say stomach ulcer, gives you such sharp pains that you landed in the ER of a government restructured hospital.
Upon hospital administration, the hospital requires you to pay a lump sum CASH deposit of S$6000 upfront as deposit, in case you need a major surgery later on (I’m quoting a real-life experience of my friend here). So do you have enough savings to cater for this requirement?
Did you know that if you’ve a private integrated shield plan with 1 of these 2 providers, you only need to inform the hospital that you’re covered under them? This means that these 2 insurers will waive off this upfront requirement of cash deposit via a Letter of Guarantee. i.e. You’d reduce the out of your own pocket expenses to a minimum.
They’ll also liaise with the hospital directly to take care of your hospital claim.
The abovementioned benefits are just 2 brilliant reasons why you should upgrade to a private integrated shield plan today while you’re fit and healthy.
In the event of critical illness, do you know what’s the potential medical costs involved?
A local newspaper article published in 2004 stated that it cost about S$115,000 to treat colon cancer in that year.
This amount covered a 7-week stay in a Class A Ward in a public hospital, loss of income and paid help for a domestic helper to take care of the patient.
Other factors to consider:
Do you think your boss will keep your job for you till you recover?
What about the loss of your income while you stay at home to rest? What about your monthly financial obligations such as mortgage and paying for your children’s school fees?
If you’ve upgraded to a private integrated shield plan with a rider to cover the annual deductible and co-insurance, you’ll have a peace of mind knowing that you can potentially reduce the cash outlay from your pockets when you have coverage from the 1st dollars onwards for your potential medical bills.
