Is there a process that's is normally followed? Our insurance seems only to cover inpatient hospital treatment, so I was going to book our helper an appt with the GP and presumably give my credit card details for the consultation fee and any medicine?
What happens if the doctor suggests further tests - I suppose we just pay for those, as well? Grateful for any guidance.
Ok, relief! Yes ypy should pay if not covered. There are quite a few very good local clinics she could go to. Where are you? Did you send her to your expat gp? I had a local gp in river valley. $25 consult for me, kids or maid alike.
We were going to go to the International Medical Centre in the Camden building (Tanglin mall?), as we use it, but yours sounds good - do you have the name please? I want a good, reliable doctor but fairly new to Spore so difficult without a recommendation.
Its the dr at the valley point/ fraser suites. I can only remember that his first name is Christopher. A good listener. Very sweet and funny with little children. I started going with kids as they open quite late in the evening and saturday so very helpful for little emergency/walk in appointments.
Would definitely recomend this or silver cross. Tests will likely be done at a cheaper local lab/ hospital.
We did go to imc in camden too since we have a good expat insurance. Might as well use it to the max right? Honestly this whole medical business is one big scam!
