5  Co-insurance is a percentage of the claimable amount that a policyowner needs to co-pay on top of the Deductible.
6  We will pay for a planned hospitalisation or surgical (including day surgery) treatment incurred by the life assured/ patient at an overseas hospital subject to the life assured/patient having referrals from an approved Medisave-accredited institution/referral centre in Singapore. The overseas hospital must have an approved working arrangement with the Medisave-accredited institution/referral centre in Singapore.

Please note: To confirm the countries and respective hospitals where treatment would be allowed for, please contact an approved Medisave-accredited institution/referral centre in Singapore.
