Free MediShield Life consultations to be launched at more CCs

SINGAPORE - Free MediShield Life consultations will be expanded to 22 more community clubs next month, the People's Association announced on Friday.

The sessions involve volunteers from the Insurance and Financial Practitioners Association of Singapore answering residents' questions about the new scheme. They are already held at 65 locations here.

Minister in the Prime Minister's Office Chan Chun Sing, who is also deputy chairman of the People's Association, hosted an appreciation dinner for 760 such volunteers yesterday.

The initiative was first piloted at Tanjong Pagar GRC last July. It has since expanded to more GRCs, with more than 5,300 residents benefiting from the sessions so far.

The consultations are open to anyone who is keen to find out more about MediShield Life. They are typically held on Mondays from 7pm to 9pm, and residents can register at their respective CCs in advance to make an appointment.
