Why do premium rebates stop at age 90?
Under MediShield, the premium rebate schedule was designed to support premium rebates up to age 90, which was the maximum coverage age under MediShield. With MediShield Life, Pioneers above age 90 will not need to pay any premiums after the Pioneer Generation Subsidies and Medisave top-ups. In view of this, there is no immediate need to extend the last coverage age of the premium rebates.
The Ministry of Health will review the premium rebates from time to time so that the distribution of rebates is able to meet the needs of the elderly then.
