At CFO, we endeavour to provide you with a detailed cost estimate before any planned admission for surgery. The costs of your admission and surgery depend on your medical condition and what surgery you are planning to undergo. The CFO staff tasked to assist you in your surgery arrangements will also be able to assist and provide general advice in this area. Specific information pertaining to your insurance coverage may require you to speak to your HR or insurance advisor. We will be happy to advise and guide you along the way.
All CFO doctors are MediSave accredited which means you will be able to use MediSave to help pay for some of your hospitalization / surgery costs.
Integrated Shield Plans
We are also on the specialist panels of most major integrated shield insurers that have curated a panel of private medical specialists. By choosing a specialist on your insurer’s panel, you can often enjoy a myriad of augmented benefits from your policy such as pre-approval assurance for your hospitalization bill and cashless admission. Nevertheless, withdrawal limits, out-of-pocket expenses, exclusions and direct billing arrangements will depend on your personal IP plan. Please speak with us or your insurance advisor for more information.
CFO sits on the panels of many corporate insurers that provide both outpatient and inpatient coverage. Coverage limits, co-payment arrangements, referral processes and direct billing arrangements will depend on the insurance plan that your HR has covered you with. Do speak with us or your HR colleagues for more information.
International Insurance Plans
If you do not reside in Singapore but have an insurance plan that covers you internationally, it may be possible for CFO to make direct billing arrangements with your insurer if they are willing to provide us with a Letter of Guarantee (LOG). Alternatively, you may choose to pay upfront for your treatment and then seek reimbursement directly with your insurer. Let us know if you have an international insurance plan.
Kindly present your corporate/private insurance card upon registration
