View Full Version : Is GST Claimable in Medical Insuarance?

My company has a hospitalization insurance with Aviva. When I got back the refund, I got all the amount back less the gst. My colleague who was processing the claim told me that the gst part of the bill is not claimable.

I decided to check with another insurance company, NTUC Income, about the hospitalization insurance and they also told me that the gst portion of the bill was not claimable. Anyone knows whether this is a industry standard.

from what I understand, the GST of medical bill is not claimable.

However, I understand, Great Eastern Supreme Health plan (shield plan) DOES cover GST payment for medical bill. Thus you can consider switching your plan to Great Eastern.
