Are Singapore Permanent Residents eligible for Suspension of Premium Collection?



MediShield Life is a compulsory, basic health insurance which helps members meet the large costs of hospitalisation at Class B2 or C wards and certain outpatient treatments in Singapore’s approved medical institutions. All Singapore Citizens and Singapore Permanent Residents are required to be covered under MediShield Life. The intent of this insurance is to give all Singapore residents assurance of universal healthcare coverage, including those with pre-existing conditions, for life.

Overseas Singapore citizens who live abroad permanently with no intention to reside in Singapore can apply for suspension of MediShield Life premium collection. Singapore Permanent Residents will not be eligible for the suspension of premium collection. Permanent Residents have applied to reside in Singapore and should continue to meet their MediShield Life obligations.
