This section will guide you through the claims submission process to file a medical claim for plans such as ManuCare, ManuMediCash and Hospital and Surgical plans
For medical reimbursement claims that are less than S$1,500 or if the hospitalisation period is less than five days, we may waive the Attending Physician Statement, provided there is sufficient documentary evidence such as an “Inpatient Discharge Summary” or “Doctor’s Memo” showing the cause of illness and period of hospitalisation. However if deemed necessary, the Attending Physician Statement may still be required for claims that meet the above criteria.
To help us process your claim as quickly as possible, please ensure that the required documents listed in the next section are completed and sent to us. We may need more time to process the claim if further clarification is needed, and will inform you if this occurs.
