Do you know that Medisave can be used for certain dental surgeries?
Yes, that’s right. As Specialist Dental Group is accredited by Singapore’s Ministry of Health as a day surgery facility, you can claim a portion of your expenses for dental surgery using Medisave. Note that this applies for patients who are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents of Singapore.
Wisdom teeth surgery, implant surgery, bone grafting, removal of cysts, and biopsies may be claimable under Medisave. The exact amount would depend on the complexity of the procedure and it is based on a per surgery basis.
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 complete payment. 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.
Here are four easy steps you can take to use Medisave for your dental surgery.
- Make payment for you or your loved one’s dental surgery treatment fees using cash, NETS or credit card;
- Allow us to help you submit the Medisave claims. From our experience, it takes two to three weeks for the claim to be processed.
- Once approved, we will notify you as soon as possible. We will also issue you a cheque for the amount approved for the Medisave claim.
- Let us know if you would like us to bank the cheque in for you or if you prefer to pop over to the clinic to collect your cheque at your convenience.
