    • Using your insurance for a Parkway East Hospital bill

      At Parkway East Hospital, we accept both local and international insurance policies to cover your bills for hospital treatments and follow-up care. Be assured as you seek treatment at our facilities and recover with peace of mind.

      If you have an Integrated Shield Plan and a full rider* that covers you for private hospitals, you may be eligible for our cashless service. With this service, you can be admitted for treatment at Parkway East Hospital with no payment needed at admission or discharge.

      Local and international health insurance plans

      Integrated Shield Plan for Singapore citizens and Permanent Residents

      An Integrated Shield Plan rides on top of your existing MediShield Life Plan to provide additional coverage for Class B1 or A wards, even for private hospitals. A full rider* completely covers the co-insurance and deductible components of the bill.

      All Singapore citizens and permanent residents are covered under the basic MediShield Life Plan. You can then opt to add-on the Integrated Shield Plan to cover your Parkway East Hospital bills.

      To make an Integrated Shield Plan claim for your treatment, you only need to inform our hospital staff that you wish to do so and the hospital will submit the claims for you. Learn more about the Integrated Shield Plan.

      Insurance plans for expatriates

      Expatriates who do not have permanent resident status are not covered by the MediShield Plan and may instead have an international health insurance. These health insurance plans provide the option of being treated in Singapore or in another country within your zone of cover. You can use your international health insurance to pay your private hospital bill.
