All patients can choose to undergo Financial Counselling.
However, should a patient be unfit for financial counselling, an appropriate representative (i.e. next-of-kin, friend, company representative) can undergo financial counselling on his/her behalf.
Services in TTSH
Our financial counsellors are located at:
Once the doctor at the Emergency Department confirms your admission, our friendly financial counsellors will share with you the relevant ward charges and estimated bill size, in relation to the ward class that you have chosen. Our Financial counsellors would also actively identify and advise patients who may be financially at risk and provide them with information on financial assistance schemes.
If you were unable to undergo financial counselling during admission, financial counsellors at the wards will approach and inform you on your estimated hospital charges. They will also approach you if your bill exceeds the original estimated range provided during your first financial counselling session.
If you have any financial or bill related queries during or after your stay, please approach our friendly financial counsellors at Admission Office.
