Any mummy here with special need children has been rejected by CPF board to be covered under the Medisave?
As we know, Medisave is the basic insurance coverage given to all Singapore new born babies by government -CPF Board. My son was rejected to be covered under Medisave as soon as they found out that he has a neuro condition. He was initially covered under the Medisave when they sent me a letter to approve until I (well, naivley, stupidly, honestly..whatever you call me) declared my son's health condition with the medical report at their request. 2 days after they received my declaration form, CPF board sent me a letter to inform that they have to cancel his coverage!! I was so angry.
I have tried to insure my son with the private insurance companies thereafter but none of them is willing to insure him due to his neuro condition. Does it mean that our special need children will never get to be insured by any insurance company and even by our own government??
I must say that I am very disappointed with our government in this area because they should know how heavy the financial burden is for family with special need children in terms of their medical expenses and yet they rejected the basic medical help they can give to us.
Anyone can share your experiences?
Sorry...I meant MediShield coverage.
