An insurance card that can be used in emergencies

A friend of mine was rushed to the emergency room due to a sudden heart attack and she does not have any insurance card that will cover some of the expenses in the hospital. Considering the hospital she was rushed to, I am pretty sure that her expenses will be through the roof. Since a situation like that is inevitable and we do not know when it will happen, I want to help my friend get an insurance card that will help her lessen the expenses in the hospital.

    Emergency preparedness is one of the covers of insurance cards. It is part of insurance card so that it can be accessed quickly by the user. Many health providers include emergency preparedness insurance to their cards so there will really be no problem on what card to choose. The only thing needed to be considered is the other benefits included together with the emergency preparedness insurance.

HSBC stands out as one of a few lenders that provides details regarding its interest rates

HSBC offers the lowest guaranteed flat and effective interest rates for debt consolidation loans in Singapore. Additionally, it is currently waiving its application fee for online applicants, which is normally S$88 or 1% of the loan amount. While other lenders advertise lower rates than HSBC, they use vague language such as "as low as" that indicates that borrowers may actually be offered substantially higher rates. For this reason, HSBC stands out as one of a few lenders that provides details regarding its interest rates. Additionally, it offers the lowest rates among banks that guarantee interest rates published online.

Offering material savings for those with a significant amount of debt.

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.

Lowest debt consolidation plan interest rates in Singapore with effectivly low interest rates

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.

UOB's debt consolidation plan is an effective yet expensive alternative to other plans

UOB's debt consolidation plan is best viewed as an expensive alternative to other plans because the bank advertises interest rates that are higher than those of its competitors. 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
