Medisave Claims for Dental Surgery
Patients who are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents of Singapore may be able to claim a portion of their surgical expenses from their Medisave Account.
Wisdom teeth surgery, implant surgery, bone grafting, removal of cysts, and biopsies may be claimable under Medisave. The exact amount claimable from Medisave is subject to the surgical table and the complexity of the procedure.
In the event if you do not have a Medisave account or there is insufficient Medisave fund to cover the dental procedure, you may utilize the Medisave from your immediate family members such as your spouse, parents, or child. In such a case, this immediate family member would require to present his IC and be present at the clinic to sign on the Medisave claim form.
