General Information

If you wish to make a claim for the hospitalisation bill on your insurance policy, you are advised to contact your insurance adviser or company as soon as possible. Note that certain time limits may apply under your policy.

If you are insured under a Medisave-approved Private Integrated Plan (PMI), the hospital will submit your claim to your insurer directly. You should therefore inform the hospital upon admission.

To Submit A Claim

Step 1

Obtain a claim form from your insurance company.

Step 2

Complete the claim form and obtain relevant documents such as Hospital Final Bill / Receipt,Hospitalisation Inpatient Discharge Summary *(& other documents as stated on claim form).

Step 3

Submit both claim form and relevant documents to your insurance company for processing. You may be asked to sign a Clinical Abstract form authorising the insurance company to obtain further information when necessary. If you are required to furnish a medical report by the attending physician (as set out in a claim form by insurance company), proceed to step 4.

Step 4

Present the medical report request (as set out in a claim form) to the hospital. You may apply in person at any payment counter in our hospital or mail in your request with a cheque payment to our Medical Records Office. Please cross cheque and make payable to ‘Khoo Teck Puat Hospital’. Processing time is about 2 to 3 weeks.

IMPORTANT

For confidentiality reasons, patient’s consent is very important. If the signature does not match our records, we will need the patient to come personally with legal documents for verification and to collect the report.

Please download and complete consent form for release of medical information.

      Please enquire with your respective insurance company.

      For small claims (less than S$1000), you are advised to use the 'Inpatient Discharge Summary' provided to you upon discharge. You should request for medical report only if the insurance company request for it.

    There is a fee for each report. You are advised to request for the one that is relevant for the purpose of your claim.
