cancer treatment drugs in singapore

MOH will only allowed approved cancer treatment drugs to be claimable under the basic and integrated shield plan from 2023. This may means that patients may missed out on cost effective drugs but not on MOH list due to the cost. This imply that it had to come out of our pocket. This will affect average Singaporeans like us but not the affluent people.

This will allowed us to have limited access to cost effective drugs on the market. The main primary reason is the cost as we will not be able to afford it. Thus, we will have to depend on drugs on the MOH approved list. It may not be the best effective drugs but is cost efficient to the government. It may not sound reasonable to the average residents in Singapore.

Please stay healthy if you want to have a good and sustainable life. Nothing is free here and everything comes with a cost.

Most of the Singapore insurance companies will be removing the no co-payment of the integrated shield plan (IP) rider by Apr 2021. All customers will need to pay a minimum of 5% of co-payment for their hospital stay. Previously, all customers on the rider plan does not need to make any co-payment. All these are changing as Ministry of Health is recommending that every person should be responsible for the healthcare cost.

Ace Insurance Singapore ignore my email request

Last month I have send a request to cancel my term policies with Ace Insurance as I have a better deal with American Home Assurance. Most insurance company will accept email request for cancellation of term policy and I send it in on 26 March 2009. I got acknowledge receipt of my email from Ace Insurace on the same day also.

But nobody responsd to my email and therefore I decided to call on 20 April 2009. I found out from customer service that my request was not process. Furthermore, I was asked to send in a request again and the staff, Winston promised he will monitor my email request closely.

I called in today to check with the customer service and confirmed that my request was recieved. My advice to all insurance customers who cancel their policy is to check out the cancellation status of their policy. 

American Home Assurance will process my request on receieving my email within one working day. A email will be sent out by their staff that they have process the request. This is what I call a great service standard by an insurance company.
