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.

    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.

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.
