Why does my company need to offer group medical insurance in Singapore?

Not only does a good group medical plan help attract top talent to your business, but it also provides them with vital protection. Singapore healthcare 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, without high-quality insurance foreign nationals 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 being a significant financial commitment for your team members. By offering comprehensive group medical insurance as part of your employee benefits scheme, you are making it clear to your current and future teams that you prioritise their health and financial security. If you would like to discuss this further, leave your details here, and one of our team will get in contact to help you out.

What should be included in your Group Medical Insurance?

We recommend that you make these as extensive as possible by including:

  • Inpatient Coverage
    • With sufficient limits to cover a Private or Semi-Private room as well as surgical procedures and treatment of chronic diseases such as Cancer and Kidney Dialysis
  • Outpatient Coverage
    • Covering GP and Specialist consultations as well as prescription medications
    • Physiotherapy and Psychiatric benefits are increasingly in demand
  • International Emergency Services
  • Wellness benefits to include preventative care such as health screenings
  • Additional benefits such as Maternity, Dental and Vision

You can tailor these to suit your workforce and our team will guide you through the process every step of the way. Call our team today if you have any questions about what needs to be included in your group medical plans.

What are the benefits of an international group medical plan for employees?

  • These plans provide worldwide coverage allowing your agile team to access top quality medical care wherever they may be working, meaning that they don’t have to wait to return from a business trip to seek medical attention. This benefit could be enticing to potential employees, especially when you need them to travel frequently.  
  • It is easier for your employees to understand what they are covered for. Benefits that are defined by hospital room type and access to direct billing means employees can focus on their health, not their final bill.
  • Value-add services like Employee Assistance Programs, Second Medical Opinion services and technology-enabled solutions like tele medicine provide for more holistic solutions.
  • Bundling all these employee benefits together makes the result far more cost effective.

These plans will be able to be used in conjunction with comprehensive group travel insurance policies to provide well rounded, holistic protection for your people wherever they are working with your organization. Arrange a time to talk with our team about these employee benefits further.
