Insurance & Billing
Here at Aelius Surgical Centre, your comfort is our top priority, and we strive to provide a holistic healthcare experience to our patients.
We understand the worry regarding bills and payments, but rest assured that private healthcare can be affordable with the right Integrated Shield Plans and Corporate Insurance Plans. We will also work with you to ensure a seamless and comfortable experience.
Integrated Shield Plan (ISP)
An Integrated Shield Plan (ISP) is a holistic health insurance scheme that comprises two main elements.
The first part is administered by the Central Provident Fund Board and is known as MediShield Life. The second component involves supplementary private insurance coverage offered by insurance companies authorized by the Ministry of Health (MOH).
How does ISP work?
ISP provides financial protection for hospitalisation and medical treatment expenses incurred in private hospitals or in the higher-class wards of public hospitals. The insurance providers offers their unique shield plans offering a wide range of options, allowing individuals to select the most suitable plans that aligns with their needs and preferences. ISP encompasses the following areas of coverage:
- Hospitalisation expenses
- Medical treatment costs
- Pre & post-hospitalisation outpatient bills
- Access to private hospitals
- Higher-class accommodations in public hospitals
When it comes to bills and payments, private healthcare can be affordable with the right Integrated Shield Plans and riders. We will work with your insurer in obtaining pre-authorisation or Letter of Guarantee (LOG) for any admission procedure. In addition, we work with the hospital or surgical centres in processing your medical claims, ensuring a comfortable and seamless experience.

Medisave can be used at all public and private healthcare institutions as long as you are a Singapore Citizen or a Permanent Resident in Singapore with an existing Medisave account.
The MediSave Withdrawal Limits are generally enough to cover the medical costs incurred if you stay in a B2 or C ward in a public hospital. However, if you opt to switch to a ward type (B1 and above) or to a private hospital, you may be required to fork out additional cash to settle the bill. However, Medisave can also be used to pay for specific investigations such as Gastroscopy or Colonoscopy if you are experiencing discomfort or suspect that you may have a condition that needs to be diagnosed.
The amount claimable from Medisave is $650 for gastroscopy and between a range of $950 to $1,550 for colonoscopy. Do note that this figure depends on whether any polyps have been removed during the procedure.

In general, you can submit your claims to multiple insurers, but the total payout from the combination of policies is limited to your actual medical expenses. Due to claims-based pricing from some IP insurers, you should claim from other insurances first (e.g. employers’ group medical insurance, personal hospital income insurance, etc). This may vary significantly from individual to individual, please discuss your personal circumstances with your insurer or financial adviser.
Medical insurance coverage will differ depending on the patient’s medical insurance and their company’s medical insurance (if any).
