Knowing your CPF Insurance Schemes
Created by Ferris Wee - Financial Literacy Trainer
Students: 11117, Price: Free
This E-learning module aims to help you understand various types of health insurance, specifically the basic insurance schemes provided by CPF Board to protect you. CPF stands for Central Provident Fund. It is the social security savings plan for Singapore. In this module, we will cover the following: Understanding Health Insurance; Types of Health Insurance and Understanding CPF Insurance Schemes.
Health insurance prevents you and your family from suffering a financial loss as a result of an accident, illness or disability. There are different types of health insurance policies to help you and your family cope with expenses during these times. Do note that some health insurance policies are short term, i.e. they may cover you for only a limited period. Do check that your product covers the duration that you need. If you buy a short term policy, check whether there is guaranteed renewability if this is important to you.
Health insurance is marketed as a standalone policy or added as a rider onto life insurance by charging extra premium. Depending on the type of health insurance, premium may be level throughout the policy duration or it may increase with age.
MediShield is a basic medical insurance scheme designed to help pay part of the expenses arising from the insured’s hospitalisation and certain outpatient treatments for major illnesses at approved medical institutions. It is most suitable for hospitalisation at Class B2/C level in restructured hospitals in Singapore.
MediShield Life – Starting 1 November 2015
The Ministry of Health (MOH) is working to further enhance MediShield to provide all Singaporeans with greater peace of mind and assurance against large bills.
These enhancements are aimed at:
1. Better coverage of large bills so that Singaporeans who incur large bills will pay less;
2. Life-long, universal coverage. There will be no more maximum coverage age. Those currently uninsured and uninsurable will be brought into MediShield Life protection. Pre-existing conditions will also be covered.
This module contains several case studies which will help you make relevant comparisons among various plans and take up cover which will meet your needs.
The material covered in the course is mainly applicable for Singaporeans and people living in Singapore.

Your New Relationship Life Insurance Policy and Survival Guide

Learn concepts, skills, and strategies to preserve the healthy relationship you have with your fiancé or spouse.
Discover the Secrets of Healthy Relationships in this Comprehensive Step-By-Step Program.
Build a firm, “perma-fresh” relationship with your partner
Become proficient in proactive and effective conflict resolution
Battle the root cause of relationship issues, not your partner
Tame your natural defensive reactions when dealing with conflict
Learn a unique perspective of what conflict really is, as well a groundbreaking and practical approach to resolving it.
A reporter once asked a couple, “How did you manage to stay together for 65 years?” The woman replied, “We were born in a time when if something was broken we would fix it, not throw it away.”
So how do you “fix” a relationship? The goal of this course is to answer that question.
By any standard, the extent of failed and failing relationships has been at epidemic proportions for quite some time now. This is easily demonstrated by the track record of couples who took a solemn vow to stay together forever. Even with all of the initial dedication, devotion, and pressure to remain intact, around 50% of all marriages end in divorce, with the rate rising at least 10% with each subsequent marriage.
And what about all the unhappy marriages that would mercifully end if not for situational circumstances? Since they haven’t figured out how to fix their relationship with each other, many couples feel emotionally imprisoned. They stay in a troubled, often mostly sexless marriage just because they feel financially trapped, don’t want to upset or leave their children, or simply don’t want to be on their own.
Of course, deteriorating relationships do not plague only married folks. Partners in any kind of relationship will suffer the same fate until they learn the root cause of relationship issues, and how to resolve them. Although some people may instinctively understand the principles of successful conflict resolution, the vast majority of us have not been properly and effectively taught how to “fix” our relationships.
This course is a 1-hour, 10 lesson lecture with handout tests and reading assignments after each lesson.

Created by Linda van der Westhuizen - Medical & Healthcare Fraud & Syndicate Specialist
Students: 381, Price: Free
Welcome and thank you for joining me this free talk! I provide you with an understanding of the field of insurance investigation by sharing some of the cases I have dealt with in the past and these include examples of individuals who abuse insurance products or commit fraud as well as how both new and sophisticated syndicates operate and what weaknesses they exploit for the purpose of fraud. These examples included examples of medical or health related fraud as well as those related to motor vehicle accident or theft claims.
We discuss what qualifications are required of investigator and while having studied into the field of forensics and/or criminology is beneficial, it is not the only way to get into the field. Experience and being willing to learn as you go are also ways to get into this exciting line of work.
I share with you the day to day work of an insurance investigator and this includes verification and validation of information as well as gathering of evidence to prove or disprove a specific rea of concern.
The talk is presented in a conversational way, so please grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and have a listen. It is my passion to teach all I have learnt and to share my findings and insights from actual investigations I have worked on. I know you will enjoy the talk and hope that if you are an assessor or investigator and want to broaden your knowledge base, you will check out the courses I have developed to help you grow professionally.
Insurance for Entrepreneurs
Information Vital to the Entrepreneur
Created by Irvine Learning Management Systems - An LMS for Human Resource Professionals
Students: 312, Price: Free
Welcome! My name is Shane Patrick Irvine and I am both the author and the narrator of this series of videos on pre-law business subjects. I consider this collection of business classes to be excellent pre-law material. I offer three free courses; insurance, finance, and dispute resolution as well as my feature paid courses; Pre-law and Executive Juris Doctor. Udemy provides certifications for completion of all of my paid courses, but not for my free courses. Collectively, all of the courses I offer, paid or free, are intended to be absorbed at a pace the student is comfortable with. I recognize that not everyone has access to business college and law school, and these video lectures, featuring my alter ego instructors, are especially designed to provide you with information that would be provided in a typical accredited institution. It’s generic information. The way we acquire our personal and professional education has changed with the advent of the internet and those who chose to educate themselves, should have more options. This is my contribution. For a small sum of money, I provide the same information others paid beaucoup bucks for. How long and to what depth you take to absorb the information is up to you
I wish you well in your business knowledge endeavors.
