Re: fell on the ground and hurt my knee in Singapore, is the medical fee covered?

Thanks a lot, my fall was quite bad, last time I fell this badly I was still a kid...Yes I am within 30 days between INTERNSHIPS. I checked my contract and the only 2 provisions for accident insurance are below, I don't have problem to pay up front in Singapore, if it can be reimbursed by CH insurance later...

1. The compulsory social security contributions and, if an Insurance obligation applies, the premiums for the non-occupational accident insurance are deducted from the hourly wage (gross). Additional deductions are made to the extent that they are legally required or have been agreed upon with the employee. Provided that the relevant conditions are fulfilled, the employee is Insured with the PKE Pension Foundation Energy, in accordance
with PKE s statutes and regulations.

2.The employee is insured with SU A agains workplace accidents within the framework of the obligatory accident insurance. Employees who work at least 8 hours per week are insured against non-workplace accidents. In the event of incapacity to work, employees are entitled to the daily allowance from SUVA.

As you fell, it is clearly not health related but accident related and will be treated a such.

You have accident assurance up to 30 days after the last day of paid work in order for you to arrange your own accident assurance, so depending when your last day of work was will answer your question.

You will almost certainly be asked to pay up front in Singapore and claim back here from your assurance.

Go get a packet of frozen peas or a bag of ice cubes and put on your knee, you may find this works sufficiently that the knock is not so bad after all
