Is there a need to buy health insurance now? Since the government is making it compulsory to buy insurance from them.
If you do not mind basic public hospital (B2 and C wards), you could may do with basic health insurance (aka MediShield Life). There are also strict claim limits for MediShield Life. To get treatment in better class wards and private hospitals, you will have to opt for additional health insurance (aka Integrated Shield Plan).

Therefore, the answer depends on your needs and affordability / ability to purchase.

I would like to buy critical illness insurance for my 22 yr old daughter who has existing illness which is not critical. I was advised to buy 15 or 20 yr policy with rider for critical illness. There are AIA guaranteed protected plus, Income Vivo_Assure, Manulife Lifeready which I am considering. Need some advice. Thanks

With pre-existing conditions, whether criticalbor not, Insurance companies will calculate their risks. Usually they will exclude that illness, so u can’t claim anything against it. My MIL hv cholesterol & high blood pressure, so Insurance companies will not incl those related to heart diseases incl heart attacks/bypass op claims. What u might donis if u can get doctors’ medical note/letter to indicate full recovery than might present that & hv a chance to include.
