How Can I Access Healthcare in Singapore?
Once you have lived and worked in Singapore for a period of at least six months and can apply for permanent resident status, you will be able to make contributions to the national healthcare insurance initiative and access public healthcare services.
Given that even after making contributions you are likely to be left needing to pay at least 30% of your medical costs, it is worth considering an international private health insurance package if you plan to live in Singapore.
Although it is common for employers to provide medical insurance packages, especially to those coming to work in Singapore from overseas, it is recommended that you check exactly what you are covered for and whether this cover also applies to your family.
With a Now Health International medical and health insurance plan, you can ensure your costs are covered for as little or as much healthcare access as you need while living in Singapore.
