If you require dental treatment or health screening, BUPA is happy to send a prior approval to any licensed medical provider. 

The provider may subsequently direct the bill for payment by BUPA. 

However, from our experience most of the providers do not want the hassles of payment administration and prefer the patient to pay up front. In situation like this, you may have to foot the bill first and file claims with BUPA. 

Exceptions : 

We learnt that Dental / HealthScreening at Raffles Hospital do accept prior approval arrangements. 

You will have to secure the prior approval before turning up for your appointment.
