Can a baby that is blind get an insurance?

One of my uncle's son was discovered to be blind. After observing for quite some time, we noticed that he is not looking at us directly and was not responding every time we play with him. Even though he is still young, we are planning to get an insurancee for him that will help his parents with the financial costs of his special needs.

    Being blind is a disability and that is why the government is granting them a lot of benefits. Since there are some tests that will do to babies to check if they really are visually impaired, it will cost a lot. But since insurance covers it, there is nothing to worry about. Even though the insurance is not specifically due to blindness, there is nothing to worry about because the medical insurance part will cover it.

    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.
