Singlife Maternity Care stands out from other bundled maternity plans as it is neither a standalone plan nor a traditional bundle. Each insurer’s maternity plan offers unique features, and if you have an interest in stem cell technology along with coverage for congenital illnesses and pregnancy complications, Singlife Maternity Care may be the ideal choice for you.

To be eligible for Singlife Maternity Care, either the mother or father of the child must already hold an existing insurance policy. This policy can be hospitalization coverage, critical illness coverage (standalone), whole life insurance, or even endowment and retirement plans.

Moreover, Singlife Maternity Care provides coverage for up to four babies in a single pregnancy. It includes coverage for IVF (In Vitro Fertilization), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), and Intracervical Insemination (ICI).

This is an inclusive and cost-effective maternity plan that provides coverage for expenses related to pregnancy complications and medical conditions concerning newborns.

Here are the key advantages:

Product Features & Benefits At a Glance

Comprehensive coverage at your fingertips

Enjoy peace of mind with protection against a wide range of circumstances. Gain coverage for a diverse range of scenarios, including 10 types of pregnancy complications, 23 congenital illnesses, and even the unfortunate event of loss of life. With this plan, you can enjoy the assurance of protection across various circumstances, providing you with a comprehensive safety net.

Ensure financial support during critical times

In case of hospitalization due to illnesses and pregnancy complications, both the mother and baby will receive the necessary financial assistance. Additionally, multiple claims can be made for a variety of conditions, such as post-birth anaemia, hand, foot, and mouth disease, and phototherapy for severe neonatal jaundice. This plan offers comprehensive coverage and stands ready to provide the needed financial aid when it matters most.

Pregnancy complications refers to the Hospital care benefits provided to the Mother (or child) will cease either when 30% of the sum assured has been paid or upon reaching the predefined limit.

Multiple Births Coverage During Single Pregnancy

The plan offers coverage for up to four babies conceived in a single pregnancy, including those conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF). Each baby is individually insured, and the benefits outlined in the Child’s Benefits Table will be applicable to each child.

In the event of a claim being made for one child, the benefit will still be available for the remaining child(ren). The insurer accepts pregnancies through various methods, including In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI), Intrauterine Insemination (IUI), and Intracervical Insemination (ICI), subject to underwriting.

Baby’s Comprehensive Coverage

Benefit from comprehensive coverage for your baby with the assurance of a one-time payout in specific situations. In the event that your child requires stem cell transplant surgery or experiences developmental delay, you will receive a payout to support their needs.

This coverage ensures that you have the necessary financial support during critical times, providing peace of mind and resources for your child’s well-being.

In the event that the insured child exhibits developmental delay, SingLife will provide a payment equivalent to 10% of the sum assured. This benefit will cease either when 10% of the sum assured has been paid or when the contract term concludes, whichever comes first. However, other benefits will continue as long as the policy remains active.

For the purposes of this coverage, developmental delay of the insured child refers to the inability to perform either of the following tasks by the actual attained age of 28 months, as confirmed by a pediatrician:

The developmental delay of the insured child is defined as the inability to independently walk a distance of two meters without assistance. Furthermore, it includes the inability to speak and express simple words such as “papa,” “mama,” and other basic terms. These criteria are confirmed by a pediatrician and serve as indicators for determining developmental delay in the insured child.

New Coverage With No Medical Underwriting

Simplifying the process for you, the insurer offers the opportunity to purchase a new whole life plan for your baby without the need for any health check-ups.

Within 90 days from the birth of the insured child, you have the option to acquire a new policy under this benefit, exempt from medical underwriting.

The available policies are as follows:

a) Whole life plan with a maximum total death and terminal illness (TI) benefit of S$150,000.

b) Whole life plan, including a total and permanent disability (TPD) benefit (if applicable), with a maximum total death, TI, and TPD benefit of S$150,000.

The insurer however, cannot provide payment if a claim under the new policy is directly or indirectly, wholly or partly, caused by or arising from pre-existing conditions. For coverage that exceeds the specified sums mentioned above, medical underwriting is required. This is to make the process convenient while ensuring transparency and appropriate coverage to provide customers with peace of mind.

How The Singlife Maternity Care Works

Gina, a 30 year old (age next birthday), mum-to-be, signs up for Singlife’s MyMaternityPlan in the 13th week of her pregnancy.

The unexpected:

In the 30th week of pregnancy, she is diagnosed with Pre-eclampsia* and is hospitalised for 10 days. Seven weeks before the due date, she gives birth to a baby girl, Susan.

Since Susan is born prematurely, she needs to be incubated for 7 days. Due to severe neonatal jaundice, she also needs to undergo seven days of phototherapy in the hospital, after being discharged from incubation.

The doctor advises Gina to continue with Susan’s phototherapy treatment (post-discharge) for two days for the severe jaundice condition.

*Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication that affects pregnant women if they develop hypertension after 20 weeks of pregnancy with a systolic blood pressure of at least 170mmHg or a diastolic blood pressure of 110mmHg recorded on 2 successive measurements of at least 6 hours apart, as well as proteinuria of more than 3+ on a random urine sample. The diagnosis must be confirmed by a gynaecologist or obstetrician.
