WHY DOES MY COMPANY NEED TO OFFER GROUP MEDICAL INSURANCE IN SINGAPORE?
Not only does a good group medical or health insurance policy help attract top local and foreign talent to your company, it also provides these workers with vital protection in Singapore, where medical costs can run high.
As we all know, Singapore has one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the world. While Singapore citizens and permanent residents have the basic safety net of MediShield Life to cover large hospital bills, in comparison, without high-quality group health insurance, expats working in Singapore are exposed to the full cost of treatment. A seemingly straightforward repair of a broken collarbone could cost more than S$26,000 in hospital bills, and this doesn’t include rehabilitation to get the employee back to work. Without the right cover, standard inpatient procedures can end up becoming a significantly hefty financial commitment for your foreign workers. By offering a comprehensive group medical insurance as part of your employee benefits scheme in Singapore, you are making it clear to your current and future teams that you prioritise their health and financial security.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does group medical insurance work?
Group medical insurance is a plan that covers a group of individuals. For instance, both small and large businesses can purchase group medical insurance to cover for their employees’ health in a single benefits package. The coverage may include dental, hospitalisation, and surgical procedures.
Which is the best group medical insurance?
The best group medical insurance is one that meets the needs of both the business and the employees. Every business or company has different needs and budgets so no off-the-shelf medical or health insurance package will be an automatic fit. The best solution is to have an expert listen carefully to your needs and then select the best customised options based on their recommendations.
Where to buy group medical insurance in Singapore?
If you are looking to purchase group medical insurance for your employees in Singapore, you may get in touch with our team of brokers, who will connect you with a suitable provider from a large network of insurers. Did you know that the cost is the same whether you reach out to insurers directly or via Expat Insurance? By using Expat Insurance you will also get personalised service, help with claims interventions, and quicker responses.
Is it recommended to get a hospital and surgical insurance plan if my workforce is young or healthy?
Hospital and surgical insurance isn’t just for those undergoing future surgeries. We do not know what the future holds, and illness or accidents may strike the young and old at any time. Without the proper coverage, a business and/or its employees may suddenly be facing hefty bills for even a short stay. Having a hospital and surgical insurance plan in place allows your employees to benefit from Singapore’s world-class healthcare without worrying about medical debt, and as an employer you can be assured your employees can recover and return to work promptly. Alternatively, you can consider purchasing a group personal accident plan as part of your employee benefits package.
