Where are the government-aided inpatient hospices in Singapore?
The patient needs to be assessed by a medical practitioner to determine if IHPCS is appropriate for his or her needs. Patients and their caregivers can approach the patient’s regular doctor (both specialists and general practitioners can make the referral) or medical social worker to initiate an assessment.
Singapore Residents admitted into IHPCS are eligible for means-tested Government subsidies of up to 75%, as well as MediShield Life and MediSave coverage. If patients need further financial assistance, their respective service providers will be able to provide more information. You can find an IHPCS provider through the Care Services Recommender on the Support Go Where webpage.
