The estimated fee for wisdom tooth surgery is FROM $1500 per tooth of which either the full or partial fee can be paid via Medisave, subject to final approval by CPF Board.
Patient or the Medisave Account holder has to fill in the required Medisave Authorisation Form.
If there is sufficient fund in the Medisave account (not less than $2,000), the clinic will only collect the difference between the total amount payable and Medisave portion upfront.
For instance, if the total fee is $550 and the amount you can claim from Medisave is $500, then the amount you have to pay upfront is $50 ($550 – $500).
If there is insufficient fund in the Medisave account (less than $2,000), the clinic will collect the full sum upfront. Thereafter the clinic will proceed to process the Medisave claim. Upon successful claim, the clinic will issue a cheque made payable to the Medisave account holder. Patient will be informed by phone when the cheque is ready for collection from the clinic. The processing time is about 2 months from the date of treatment.
You are allowed to use your Medisave Account to pay for your immediate family members, i.e. spouse, children, parents, grandparents. However, in the case of grandparents, they must be either Singapore citizen or Permanent Resident.
