The MediShield Life Review Committee said it will call on the Government to pay for most of the additional costs of covering those currently uninsured.

It has also recommended that MediShield Life should increase claim limits, remove the lifetime claim limit, and halve co-insurance rates.

MediShield Life will cover all Singaporeans regardless of age or pre-existing conditions, and will be launched next year.

The committee gave its second review update on Saturday, following focus group discussions with more than 800 people.
