Your queries answered.
Yes, any claims arising out of or relating to pregnancy or childbirth is claimable except for accouchement charges. This is provided that you have been insured under the Co-Pay Assist Plan for more than 12 months.
If there is a balance amount not payable by Co-pay Assist Plan, you can submit a claim request for the remaining portion under another medical policy.
You can claim according to the following co-payment rates:
|Ward||Adjusted Co-Payments Rates|
|As per plan eligibility / Downgrade of ward||7.5%||20.0%|
You will receive your claim payout depending on the method of payment as indicated in your bills.
|Your total bill amount:||$1,250|
|Your total eligible amount (assuming $250 is not payable):||$1,000|
|Employer’s co-payment (85% on your total eligible amount):||$ 850|
|Amount paid by you in cash:||$ 400|
|Our co-payment (7.5% on your total eligible amount):||$ 75|
Since you have paid $400 by cash, we will issue a cheque of $75 in favour of you. If the balance $400 is paid using Medisave, we will arrange with CPF Board to credit $75 to the Medisave account as indicated in the bill. If the balance of $400 is paid by CPF MediShield or Medisave-approved Private Integrated Plan 1, we will reimburse $75 to your plan.
