Can my doctor charge me for co-pay even if I've already reached my out-of-money maximum?

Whenever I go to my doctor's appointment, my doctor always charges me for co-pay even if I've already hit my out-of-money maximum.Is my doctor supposed to charge me for co-pay? If not then where should I report it to so I can solve the problem? I already tried calling my insurance company but they insist that I don't need to pay for it. What should I do?

    No Name

    If your insurance company tells you that you are not required to pay for co-pay then it just means that you are not required to. You should try telling the doctor's billing department because in most cases, the doctor's are not informed about this. Once you've consulted with the billing department they should reinburse the money that you've used.

    DBS Debt Consolidation Plan / DBS Bank

    POSB and DBS are offering the most significant promotional deal for debt consolidation loans. This promotion provides a cashback of 3% of the approved loan amount to borrowers. This can result in material savings, especially for those with a significant amount of debt. While the banks charges S$99 for processing fee, it is rather insignificant for applicants that receive the cashback promotion. Additionally POSB and DBS advertise flat interest rates as low as 3.98% (7.23% EIR). These rates are among the lowest available in our review of debt consolidation plans in Singapore however, they are not guaranteed.

    CIMB Debt Consolidation / CIMB Bank Berhad Singapore Branch

    CIMB advertises the lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore, with effective interest rates as low as 7%. This is a great rate for some borrowers that are actually able to secure it; however it is difficult to assess the total cost of CIMB's debt consolidation loan compared to a loan from another bank.Additionally, because POSB, DBS and Maybank are offering cashback promotions and HSBC is offering S$100 cashback and waived processing fees, CIMB's lack of promotions and 1% processing fee make it a less appealing source for debt consolidation loans. It also offers loans with shorter durations of up to 8 years than many other DCP lenders in Singapore.

Borrowers that have not previously used UOB's services are however eligible for slightly better rates but it is unclear what rates these borrowers will receive in due to the vague wording on the UOB's website

    Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee

    OCBC Debt Consolidation Plan / Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation

    OCBC's debt consolidation loans charge slightly higher interest rates compared to those of other lenders in Singapore. For this reason, the bank's product is not the most affordable. On the other hand, individuals who are unable to obtain the most affordable debt consolidation loan offers could consider applying for OCBC's Debt Consolidation Plan as a backup option. Unlike its competitors, OCBC does not charge a processing fee and it does not list rates "from X%", which suggests that its rates are more transparent and accessible. Another drawback of OCBC's debt consolidation loans is that they are only offered for tenures of 3 to 8 years, which is restrictive for individuals that would prefer a longer or shorter term debt consolidation plan.
