Elderly with no medical insurance

Dear Mr Tan,
My mother is a homemaker, age 63 and has diabetes several years ago . I tried to buy NTUC Incomeshield for her protection on medical/hospital bill but application was rejected.

I'm very worried on the high medical bill that might incur should anything happens. Can you please advise if there is any plans that can provide medical protection for my mom?

Do not worry. There are many elderly people with chronic illness and no insurance cover. They manage. There are government medical schemes for elderly to manage their chronic illness. They can get regular treatment from a doctor at subsidized rates. 

Read this article about how to manage the hospital bills.
