Why can’t CareShield Life automatically reimburse long-term care costs like MediShield Life does for hospital bills?



Monthly cash payouts under CareShield Life will provide more flexibility for individuals with severe disability and their caregivers to decide on their desired care arrangements. This is to ensure that they are not limited to certain long-term care services to be eligible to claim. 

For example, some individuals may prefer to remain in a familiar home setting and thus opt for home-based care, while others may prefer receiving care from a healthcare provider such as a nursing home.
