At 24 years old, is it recommended to purchase all my insurance (health, term life, critical illness, disability, PA etc) with one agent?
Hi anon, There's no requirement to have all your policies from a single person. I'd venture to say that what's probably the most important is to first find an advisor you can work with. If this person happens to be from an independent financial advisory firm, that would be even better as he or she can help you to analyze your options across multiple companies. There isn't a single AIA policy that can encompass 'everything'. Different policies serve different purposes. CompareFirst can give you a basic comparison of some of the most common policies out there, but you might want to speak to an advisor to get a better understanding of any policy in general. If you really want to have a single point of contact for comparing a majority of the policies on the market instead of running around to meet multiple tied agents, then you will want to speak to someone who is an Independent Financial Advisor.

It probably depends what kind of braces you're looking for. This article outlines the average costs, which can help you determine if a particular orthodontist offers fair rates.

Do existing DBS customers get any extra benefits or discounts if they sign the MyShield insurance plan?
Hi there. Aviva's partnership with DBS is no longer existent, so there won't be promotions for DBS customers anymore. However there are promotions if you buy directly with Aviva. MyShield has a promo ongoing now until end August. Do reach out to me here if you like to find out more.

AVIVA MyShield Health Insurance

What makes the AVIVA MyShield Policy inpatient and outpatient coverage different from AIG PROHealth inpatient and outpatient coverage?
Hi there. AIG ProHealth is no longer on the market and has significant differences to Aviva MyShield policies. Aviva MyShield is an Integrated Shield plan which allows you to pay the premiums through your CPF, while AIG ProHealth is payable purely through cash. It is far easier to claim through MyShield in the episode of hospitalisation than AIG ProHealth due to the former being linked to your CPF accounts, so hospitals can do e-filing for you right away. If you want to know more do reach out to me here. I represent 9 different insurers aside from Aviva.

Depends on what kind of treatment you are looking for. Also, if you are a CHAS (blue/orange) holder. In terms of cost, if you go straight to NDC, you are counted as a 'private' patient and its no difference in cost with private clinic/hospital. To enjoy the large subsidies, you must be referred from polyclinic.

Which IP would be good for my mum who is 62 this year with high blood pressure? We are mindful of the cost of premiums and riders as she age and she is looking at B1 coverage. Any advice?
I'm heartened by the fact that you are looking into an integrated shield plan for your mother. As a matter of fact, healthcare insurance is one of the most important type of insurance for anyone. This is because medical inflation has hit 10% in 2019. Consequently, a single medical cost could potentially wipe out an entire life savings. More Details: Integrated Shield Plan Singapore: A Starter's Guide Integrated Shield Plan Rider Singapore: A Starter’s Guide In truth, we all want the cheapest plan with the best benefits. However, insurers have been adjusting their premiums in the recent years and the cheapest plan today may not be so tomorrow. With this purpose in mind, I will suggest for you to understand the value that the plan is able to provide for your mother. For instance, insurers are shifting their focus towards using their panel listing of doctors. This is in an attempt to control the rising medical cost and rogue medical treatment. Therefore, it is important to work with a reputable insurer that provides such strong support. If you need a general comparison, then you can retrieve it from MOH's website. Feel free to reach out if you need specific advice. I share quality content on estate planning and financial planning here.

Definitely. Its one of the rare few that allows you to use medisave to pay. Btw go to public hospitals (referral thru polyclinic), around $500 per tooth only.
