Raffles Medical links IncomeShield policyholders to over 200 private specialists

Policyholders can now book an appointment in NTUC Income’s website.

NTUC Income and Raffles Medical Group (RMG) subsidiary Raffles Health Insurance (RHI) formed a strategic partnership to introduce the IncomeShield Private Specialist Panel. Through the panel, IncomeShield policyholders will have access to over 200 private medical specialists.

RHI will also extend clinical indicator assessment to NTUC Income as part of the partnership. “The assessment ensures that the panel delivers appropriate and high-quality healthcare to IncomeShield policyholders sustainably,” RMG said.

Additionally, RHI will also ensure that the panel offers “equitable representation” of medical specialists from within and outside RMG. “Through the combined scale of NTUC Income and RHI, the strategic partnership aims to lend strength to the curation of quality medical specialists in private practice for the panel,” RMG added.

NTUC Income general manager for life and health insurance Andrew Yeo commented, “RHI stands out as a strategic partner for us as it allows Income to tap its in-house medical expertise and ready network of practitioners in and beyond the Raffles Medical Group. The latter is the only healthcare institution in Singapore that subscribes to the Institutional Group Practice Model. It advocates physicians to render patients quality-assured medical services that are peer reviewed and medically audited.”

Starting today, IncomeShield policyholders will have priority when booking an appointment with a medical specialist on the panel via NTUC Income’s website.
