Costing & Finance

G&L Surgical Clinic understands that costing and finance may be at the top of your mind. However, your health matters. Hence, we provide comprehensive financial services to ensure a seamless and pleasant experience.

Can I Use Medisave to Cover the Cost of My Procedure at G&L Surgical?

Medisave can be used at all public and private healthcare institutions as long as you are a Singapore Citizen or a Permanent Resident in Singapore with an existing Medisave account.

The MediSave Withdrawal Limits are generally enough to cover the medical costs incurred if you stay in a B2 or C ward in a public hospital. However, if you opt to switch to a ward type (B1 and above) or to a private hospital, you may be required to fork out additional cash to settle the bill.

However, Medisave can also be used to pay for specific investigations such as Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy if you are experiencing discomfort or suspect that you may have a condition that needs to be diagnosed.

The amount claimable from Medisave is $650 for gastroscopy and between a range of $950 to $1,550 for colonoscopy. Do note that this figure depends on whether any polyps have been removed during the procedure.

Can I Utilise My Integrated Shield Plans for My Procedure or Investigations at G&L?

Your Integrated Shield Plan (IP) can be utilised for your procedure or investigation. If you have either private or company health insurance, note that the coverage for each plan may differ. It is essential to know how much coverage you are entitled to in order to ensure that your procedure is cashless.

Consider your options and needs based on the hospital ward and choice of the hospital you are selecting so that you will not be paying more than necessary.

What Costs Can Be Covered If I Use My Medishield Life Plan?

All Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents are eligible for MediShield Life. It is a basic health insurance plan which helps to cover larger hospital bills and costly treatments for conditions such as cancer.

The primary usage of MediShield Life is for treatment in public hospitals that are subsidised (Ward B2 or C). However, you can also utilise the plan for Private Hospitals or higher ward types at public hospitals (B1 and above), although the coverage may only make up a small portion of the bill.

It is also essential to also ensure that you have personal healthcare insurance to offset a more significant portion of the bill.

Suppose you have an Integrated Shield Plan (IP). In that case, your private insurer will be able to assist you in processing the medical claims and make the total payment to the medical institution on your behalf.

Any outstanding amount (inclusive of coinsurance and deductible) may be covered by MediSave and/or cash.

How Much Does It Cost to Seek Medical Treatment for My Condition?

The cost of medical treatment in Singapore may vary for different individuals based on their condition and several other factors. Thankfully, whether you opt for a government or private hospital, a large part of the cost incurred (for investigation or treatment) is covered by the Medisave Scheme, which applies to all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents in Singapore.

Apart from that, specific company and private health insurance plans may help you cover a portion or even the entire cost of investigation or treatment. You are advised to check with the relevant parties for advice on your insurance coverages.

While deciding on the choice of hospitals (government or private), it is essential to know that the medical charges and cost may vary. Where possible, you are advised to read up on expected price ranges of the wards prior to deciding on the hospital for your treatment.

Lastly, when selecting a private doctor or specialist, the doctor’s fees may differ depending on their experience and the demand for their services. Financial counselling is a must where it comes to any procedure required.
