The Ministry of Health (MOH) earlier this week announced the first major review of MediShield Life since its launch in 2015. A slew of recommendations has been put forward by the MediShield Life Council to balance the health insurance scheme's "benefits and premiums to keep pace with evolving medical practice, healthcare cost inflation and actual claims experience, so that it continues to provide assurance for Singaporeans while remaining sustainable".
Benefits will be enhanced, with higher claim limits for a number of conditions as well as, for the first time, coverage for attempted suicide and addiction disorders.
