Affordable Health Screening Under $100 in Singapore

profileRuth Lum

Health truly is wealth. That’s why health screening is of such importance, and even companies are helping to arrange for employees to receive complimentary basic annual health screening.

The truth is – sickness may strike anytime, but if a disease or condition is discovered early through routine screening, receiving treatment early would help immensely in avoiding complications, much suffering or even death.

Health screenings consist of tests like blood or urine tests and other procedures like X-rays and ultrasounds.

Take note that while some packages are offered at very affordable prices, always be sure to check what each package entails and choose one that best suits your age, lifestyle and health concerns, especially in lieu of hereditary health conditions.

Medisave Claims for Health Screenings

Alas, health screenings are not currently Medisave claimable.

However, Medisave can be used to partially pay for the cost of treating chronic diseases and for routine checks such as mammogram and colonoscopy, amongst others.

Does My Insurance Cover Health Screenings?

Most Singaporeans are covered by Medishield Life and can draw from their Medisave accounts to offset some of their recommended health screening tests.

For instance, for those aged 50 and above, up to $1,850 may be used per year to screen for colonoscopies at approved centres.

There are also private insurance plans that include regular health screenings as part of the package.

Do give your plans a check to see whether it is included.
