THE WONDERS OF MEDISHIELD LIFE?

If Mr Chua dies – since Weikang is the sole survivor of the family with no other family members – his hospitalisation bills will be covered by MediShield Life, the deductible and co-insurance may also be covered by MediFund and his MediShield Life premiums will also be waived.

MEDISHIT LIFE SCAM DOESN'T NEED ANY EXPLANATION

This is another instance of a poorly thought through scheme and there’s really nothing ‘free’ because public resources are funded by tax payers.

ARE MEDISHIELD PREMIUMS AFFORDABLE FOR THE AVERAGE S'POREAN?

It states that “About two-thirds of the population will be given permanent subsidies that range from 15 to 50 per cent of the new premiums. Anyone with a household per capita income of $2,600 or less – such as families of four with a total income of $10,400 or less – living in property with annual values of $21,000 or less, will enjoy these permanent subsidies. People living in properties with annual values of more than $21,000 do not get permanent subsidies, even if their household per capita income is very low.

This is because these people have serious pre-existing medical conditions and will need more help to offset their large hospitall bills. They will be notified through letters from the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board. Of the 25,000, 23,000 of these individuals are uninsured or are insured under MediShield or Integrated Shield plans but with exclusions.

SUBSIDIZED PUBLIC HEALTHCARE COST MORE THAN PRIVATE HOSPITALS?

Why is it that patients who are referred from a private clinic (other than Chas scheme card holders) may not be allowed to choose class C or B2 treatment? Also, why are patients typically told that they may have to wait for months for diagnostic tests or treatment, if they choose subsidised treatment (class C and B2) against treatment in class B1 and A?

NETIZEN CREATES PETITION TO EXEMPT OVERSEAS S'POREANS FROM MEDISHIELD LIFE PREMIUMS

Ever since the government unveiled a plan to launch Medishield Life, a health insurance with universal coverage for all Singaporeans regardless of age and existing medical conditions, one group of Singaporeans living overseas have been up in arms over the government's threat to impose fines and imprisonment on those who fail to pay premiums.
