PM said that the Government will improve healthcare financing to give all Singaporeans peace of mind. It will provide more help with outpatient care. It will remove the age floor (currently 40) in the Community Health Assist Scheme (CHAS) and increase subsidies for lower- and middle-income patients at Specialist Outpatient Clinics.
  • MediShield will be revamped to become MediShield Life.
  • It will cover people for life (not up to 90) and
  • be universal (covering every Singaporean, including those not currently covered, the elderly and those with pre-existing conditions).
  • MediShield Life will also give better protection for very large bills.

Because benefits and coverage are better, premiums will be higher. The Government will subsidise premiums for those who can’t afford it. MOH will conduct a public consultation exercise on this major change.
