In the event that you do not have a Medisave account or your Medisave Balance is not sufficient to cover the dental bill, your immediate family members may use their Medisave to settle it. Immediate family members refer to your spouse, parents, or child. Please note that the use of Medisave is still subject to the Medisave withdrawal limits.
Our clinic's policy is to collect the fees upfront. We will then assist patients in submitting the Medisave claims. It takes between two to three weeks for the claim to be processed. Once approved, we will issue a cheque to the patient for the amount approved for the Medisave claim.
Patients would need to come to the clinic to collect the cheque and acknowledge receipt of payment.
