Higher Healthcare Subsidies Coming Your Way
The Ministry of Health (MOH) recently revised the means-tested income criteria for healthcare subsidies and as a result, more than 365,000 citizens will get higher healthcare subsidies.
Set to be implemented by October this year, the revision sees the raising of income ceiling for each subsidy tier (ranging from S$100 to S$300).
The eligibility for healthcare subsidies is based on the monthly per-capita household income (PCHI) of Singaporeans.
- MediShield Life premiums
- Drugs at polyclinics and public specialist outpatient clinics
- Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund
- Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS)
Yes, nothing. The service providers and scheme administrators will automatically extend the subsidies to those eligible.
Although, it would not hurt to be vigilant and make sure that your service providers have done the necessary.
