Singapore has one of the best health care systems in Asia, if not the world. From a strong public health care system to world-class private hospitals, to clinics in nearly every neighborhood, expats who move to the city are rarely far from medical care. The downside to this however is that it can often be hard to figure out where you should go for care and whether public hospitals are really the best choice for expats.
To help with this decision, Pacific Prime Singapore has released a new guide. Titled: Public and Private Healthcare in SINGAPORE, this guide takes a high-level overview of the current health care system in Hong Kong and the options open to expats living in, or considering moving to, Singapore.
This guide was developed due to feedback we have had from many clients in Singapore who commented that the health care system in Singapore, while highly efficient, does have options that make it difficult to find the best health care when you need it, especially when the fact that many expats don’t qualify for MediSave - Singapore’s national health insurance scheme.
With sections on Universal Health, Public hospitals, private hospitals, cost, insurance options, and more, readers can gain a better understanding of the health care system in Singapore and the options available to them.
Olivier Zeller, Country Manager (Singapore) at Pacific Prime commented, “Singapore has so many strong options for health care that it can often be overwhelming for newly arrived expats. Since we are their first point of contact on all aspects of their Medical Insurance, Pacific Prime’s clients often ask for recommendations on hospitals and doctors. This guide is a great tool that is aimed at providing a high-level overview that is essential for anyone who will seek medical care in Singapore.”
