Expat Insurance For Maternity Periods


Welcoming a new child into the world is a very special experience. As an expat, understanding how and what insurance policies are available for maternity periods can go a long way in protecting the health and financial needs of you and your baby.

Drop us a line today if you have any queries and we would be happy to help answer any questions that you may have before you start this exciting adventure as a family here in Singapore.

Our team here speaks to many expat couples looking to start or expand their families every day. Often times, many are unaware that insurance plans for maternity periods are not purchasable on a standalone basis in Singapore. Maternity insurance plans must be purchased as an addition to your existing medical insurance policy. It aids in financially protecting you from the high costs of maternity care in Singapore.

Many Maternity Insurance policies will also ensure that your baby is covered from day 1 (as opposed to day 91). This is absolutely vital when short stays in the neonatal intensive care unit can cost upwards of $30,000. Our team will be happy to guide you as an expat in Singapore through the ins and outs of insurance add-ons for maternity periods in Singapore.

Singapore is among the most expensive countries globally to grow families, which explains why medical insurance that includes maternity coverage can relieve a lot of stress during your pregnancy. Get a quote today and we can help give you an idea of which package will suit you and your growing family best. The last thing that you want to be thinking about when the time comes is the bill!

A natural birth in a private hospital in Singapore can cost up to $15,000 depending on your preferred accommodation (single room or double), while a C-section is approximately $21,000-$25,000. If complications were to occur for the mother or baby, we’ve seen costs escalate significantly.

If you are an expat with a growing family in Singapore, we encourage you to talk to us and we will do our best to walk you through the available insurance plans with maternity coverage.

Pregnancy Waiting Period

It pays to think ahead seeing as most maternity insurance plans in Singapore require you to fulfil no longer than 12 – 24 months waiting period. Policies differ so you need to know what your wait period is. If you have any questions, just contact us and we will help you to clarify your maternity insurance policy.
