Foreign Workers Medical Insurance – Product Summary
Instant medical insurance coverage for your foreign employees.
Your cost-effective solution to mandatory health insurance.
In January 2008, employers are required by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to purchase medical insurance to protect the well-being of their foreign employees. With effect from 1 January 2010, the minimum insurance coverage for foreign employees will be increased from $5,000 to at least $15,000 a year. This is to help employers cushion the impact of large hospital expenses.
