How to apply for MediSave claims for dental treatments and procedures?

Step 1:

When you book an appointment at Nuffield Dental, please inform our team that you would like to claim from your MediSave for your dental treatment.

Step 2:

Please bring your NRIC when you visit our clinic for verification purposes and fill out the Medical Claims Authorisation Form during registration. Our team will then request you to log in to your SingPass account to check whether you have sufficient balance in your MediSave account.

Step 3:

The team will handle the submission process for you and MediSave will send a Claims Statement to you once the claim application has been approved and processed.

You will be required to only pay the difference between the total dental treatment bill and the MediSave claims on the day of treatment. For example, if the procedure is $4,000 and the eligible claim amount is $1,500, you will pay the difference, which is $2,500.

If there is insufficient balance in your MediSave account, the team will advise on payment options depending on the total bill.
