Outpatient care refers to medical services that are provided at a medical facility without the patient having to stay overnight in a hospital. As outpatient services are the most common form of medical care, most insurance plans have an outpatient insurance coverage. This covers all, if not most, outpatient consultations and treatments. You may also be eligible for panel direct billing, in which your bills will be sent to your insurance provider directly.

 

Furthermore, personal accident insurance plans may cover certain aspects of outpatient care. Depending on your coverage, these accident plans can be utilised if you are suffering from a hand/wrist injury as a result of an accident or trauma.

 

Ultimately, it is best to check with your insurance agent on the coverage policies that you hold.

Most insurance covers diagnostic tests like X-rays and MRIs, but only within a specified limit. Should the charges be above the limit, we can try to help you obtain a Letter of Guarantee (LOG) to help cover the cost unless your insurance company requires you to obtain it personally. However, the approval is up to your insurer’s discretion. We can also help to ascertain coverage confirmation before proceeding with the medical investigation.

An orthopaedic surgeon is a specialist focused on the evaluation and management of all musculoskeletal disorders. This covers the bone, joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and in a large area of the body, including the hip, knee, foot, ankle, shoulder, elbow, hand, wrist and spine.
