What is Additional Premium Support and what are the eligibility criteria for Additional Premium Support?
Additional Premium Support (APS) provides financial assistance to members who are unable to afford their premiums even after premium subsidies and MediSave use, and have limited family support. This may include low-income single elderly without family support and low-income families with multiple dependants. The Government will invite these individuals to apply for APS and help them with the process if they are unable to do so themselves.
Eligibility for APS is based on, but not limited to the applicants’ and his immediate family members’ financial means. Flexibility will be exercised for individuals who may not completely meet the criteria but need help because of their financial circumstances.
No one will lose their MediShield Life and CareShield Life (if applicable) coverage due to the inability to pay premiums.
