MediShield Life replaced MediShield from 1 Nov 2015, and will offer:

  • Better protection and higher payouts, so that patients pay less Medisave/cash for large hospital bills 
  • Protection for all Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents, including the very old and those who have pre-existing  conditions

MediShield Life is a basic health insurance plan, administered by the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board, which helps to pay for large hospital bills and selected costly outpatient treatments, such as dialysis and chemotherapy for cancer.

MediShield Life coverage is sized for subsidised treatment in public hospitals. Those who choose to stay in a Class A/B1 wards or in a private hospital are also covered by MediShield Life. However, as MediShield Life payouts are pegged at Class B2/C wards, the MediShield Life payout will make up a small proportion of the bill only. The patient may therefore need to pay more of their bill from Medisave and/or cash.

*Information taken from the Ministry of Health (MOH). For more information on MediShield Life benefits and how MediShield Life claims work, please visit the MOH Medishield Life website.

Many Singaporeans have private insurance plans for hospitalisation in the form of Integrated Shield Plans (IPs).

If you are covered by one of the following plans, you have an IP.

 

IPs comprises two components:

  • The first is a MediShield Life component run by the Central Provident Board (CPF) Board. From 1 Nov 2015, MediShield Life replaced the MediShield component of your policy, to give policyholders better coverage.

  • The second is an additional private insurance coverage component run by private insurers, typically to cover Class A/B1 wards in public hospitals or private hospitals.

If you have an IP, you are already covered by MediShield Life. MediShield Life is a component of your IP, there is no duplicate coverage.

The private IP insurers act as a single point of contact for IP policyholders, even though they work with CPF Board back-end on premium collection and claims disbursement for the MediShield Life component.
