Medishield is a low-cost medical insurance scheme that helps Medisave account holders and their dependents meet the costs of treatment of serious or prolonged illnesses. It covers Medisave account holders who are Singaporeans or Permanent Residents who have not opted out of Medishield.
If you are not sure if you or your dependents are covered under Medishield, you may check with the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board or request for our staff handling your admission to check for you.

If you are covered under Medishield at the time of your hospitalisation, you may claim part of your hospital bill from Medishield, subject to the applicable deductible amount.

JCH will assist to submit claims on behalf of our patients to the CPF Board.

Medishield will not pay for the treatment of pre-existing illnesses for which the patient has received medical treatment 12 months before the start of the Medishield cover. It will also not cover certain categories of treatment, eg. congenital anomalies, cosmetic surgery, delivery charges, mental illness, personality disorders, etc.
