Anyone knows what are the difference of a private medical insurance (paid with cash) vs a medishield private integrated plan which allows you to pay via medisave.

I understand that you can add a rider(pay cash) to the medishield one to take care of the deductible and co-insurance. so in that case then there is no difference to the pure private vs the medishield private plans? or is there a catch somewhere? because it seems that the medishield private plans offer a better deal for the same type of benefits.

i thought private hospitalisation also can pay with medisave to a certain amt. then usually if you want zero excess then top up with cash.

without the rider, the excess is 3K. the rider covers expenses up to 3K.

The main difference is choice: PAY BY CASH OR PAY BY MEDISAVE

Assuming the medical plan costs $2K per year - u rather pay by FULL SOLID cash (whether installment or not) from your own bank or u rather pay by medisave (i.e. "virtual" cash sitting idle in your CPF which u cannot withdraw at all whatever age u reach)???

Is that a very difficult choice? u decide...

Medishield or medisave type of insurance has a yearly , lifetime cap and certain surgical claims limits. It is more for singapore treatments. Private insurance can cover wider even miscarriage, dental or treatment in other countries hospital.

The old Medishield is no longer offered by CPF and is now taken over by the private ins. companies and offer these so call integrated plans.

So in a sense, they are all 'private' medical ins. now.

The difference is that you can use Medisave to pay the premiums for the integrated plans.

Both plans - you can insert a rider to take care of the co-ins. and deductible, but the rider can only be paid by CASH, even for the integrated plans.

Pls take up at least a private shield plan even if your company has insurance in place for you.

If u lose your job, it usually means end of coverage as company plans are usually not portable. (Think abt it, it will be a doulbe whammy to be diagnose with some serious illness, having to resign and lose that company coverage)

I am surprise that Insurance agents earn so much.

 

Although the commission quantum (actual amount) per transaction is small compared to those earned by property agents, it is easier to sell insurance than properties.

 

In short, insurance agents can have not only a good but great salary too.

I think it is being abused by many. Recently, many of these insurers taking measures to prevent people from abusing it.

Not true, the base deduction from medisave for private A1 ward is also much higher than basic medishield life or B1 plans. I am assuming you are referring to the cash outlay for the rider portion.

 

For real emergency or life threatening cases, government hospitals still ok, not like it's so bad.
