Payment process

For claims under GREAT SupremeHealth that are submitted via e-filing, the payment will be made directly to the hospital/ day surgery centre. The hospital/day surgery centre will finalise the bills and process the refund according to the patient.

For claims that are submitted manually, the reimbursement is first made to the policyholder for any cash payment, followed by the reimbursement to the CPF MediSave Account, and then followed by the reimbursement to MediShield Life or MediSave-approved Integrated Shield Plan.

For cash payment, reimbursement will be via PayNow.


Questions and Answers

GREAT SupremeHealth, which is an Integrated Shield Plan, consists of 2 parts:

a. MediShield Life (Basic component) which is compulsory and administered by CPF Board

b. An additional private insurance coverage portion provided by Great Eastern.

The final payout from the integrated GREAT SupremeHealth will comprise the MediShield Life payout and GREAT SupremeHealth’s additional insurance coverage payout.

If you are a Singapore citizen or permanent resident who has MediShield Life, and uses MediSave to pay for the GREAT SupremeHealth premium, you will be covered under the integrated GREAT SupremeHealth.

Expenses incurred are subject to deductible and co-insurance, where applicable.

Deductible is the initial amount the life assured needs to pay in period of insurance (policy year) before any payout from the GREAT SupremeHealth can be made.

Co-insurance is proportion of the claim the life assured needs to pay after the deduction of the deductible. It is expressed as a percentage of the total claimable amount.

  • Outpatient Kidney Dialysis Treatment
  • Outpatient Cancer Treatment (Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Stereotactic Radiotherapy)
