How much does Medisave cover for dental implants?

Dental Dental Implants
Is it per tooth or for the overall cost of surgery?
DOCTOR’S ANSWER (2)

Hi there, Thank you for your email. Medisave is a national medical savings scheme setup by the Government of Singapore to help subside surgical treatment for Singaporeans and Permanent Resident. It helps you meet future personal or immediate family's hospitalisation, day surgery and certain outpatient expenses. In terms of dental implants, you are allowed to use up to $950 of Medisave per implant.

This is only for the surgical phase where the dental implant is placed. You will not be able to use Medisave for the crown of the dental implant. In addition you will be able to claim up to $300 using Medisave for items such as doctor's examination charges, consumables required for the surgery, medication and xrays.

For certain cases, the doctor may require the use of bone grafts or procedures such as sinus lifts in order to create a better foundation for the dental implants. Medisave currently allows a single surgical procedure to be done on a single tooth site. For example this means that if you need a bone graft for an implant on the same day, you can only claim either the Medisave component for either the bone graft or the implant - not for both.

Medisave is your money. Remember that you need to know all costs before embarking on any surgical treatment. In addition most dentists will prepare a treatment plan before commencement of any dental implant work so there is clarity on all costs. Hope this helps sincerely Dr Samintharaj Kumar

You can usually claim up to $1250 in Medisave for one dental implant, subject to a maximum of $7500 for 8 implants.

No dentist can guarantee the success of any Medisave claim. We can only submit the request, but the final claimable amount is still subject to approval by MOH. The dentist has no control and no say over the final amount that will be reimbursed, and each claim submission will be assesed by MOH officials.

From time to time, MOH may at their discretion change the Medisave claim rules and regulations and this is also beyond the control of any dentist.

To make a Medisave claim, just bring along your Singaporean Identity Card to prove that you are a Singaporean Citizen or Permanent Resident. The clinic staff will do the rest, including submitting all the necessary paper work. Medisave can only be used for Singaporeans and Singapore PRs.
