Patients to pay less with MediShield Life, and premiums can come entirely from Medisave

WHEN MediShield Life is launched next year, patients can look forward to the national medical insurance paying a larger portion of their big hospital bills than the current MediShield does.

Commenting on the interim report from the MediShield Life Review Committee released last month, Health Minister Gan Kim Yong said he agrees with the “focus on enhancing benefits under MediShield Life to reduce the co-payment borne by patients.

“This will ensure greater peace of mind for Singaporeans against the risk of incurring large hospital bills.”

MediShield Life, to be launched next year, will cover everyone, even those with preexisting illness, for life.
