Will checks be conducted for new Singapore Residents who are subsequently covered under MediShield Life?
For new Singapore Residents who are subsequently covered under MediShield Life, we will have a range of checks, including reviewing medical records after they are covered. They will also be required to declare their health status upon receipt of the In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter from the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA). The e-form can be found by using this link.
If they are identified to have serious pre-existing conditions, they will be subject to the 30% Additional Premiums for 10 years. Those who make false health declarations will be guilty of an offence under the MediShield Life Scheme Act and will be liable to pay penalties.
