Hear From Our Clients
Pleasant sales experience and onboarding process
As a cancer survivor, I was doubtful about finding a health insurer that is able to accept me with my medical history. Despite my skepticism, I managed to connect with Joy, my Raffles Health Advisor (RHA), who was very patient and genuine in attending to my questions for hours via a video conference call. She made me feel assured that my needs and concerns are thoroughly addressed. She was also very helpful in following up with my application process and for that, I am very grateful.
Affordable health insurance plan for my child
As a young mother, I wanted to find an affordable health insurance for my kid. However, I was concerned about the rising cost of medical insurance in Singapore. Thankfully, Raffles Health Insurance provided me with health insurance plans that are priced decently lower than my previous one. Furthermore, I really liked the additional assurance that Raffles Shield will continue to provide medical insurance coverage for my kid should anything happen to me with their ‘Waiver of Premiums for Child’ benefit until my kid is 21 years of age.
