Under the CareShield Life and Long Term Care Act, what data will be shared and for what purposes?



Under the CareShield Life and Long Term Care Act, health information on insureds’ disability status will be used for assessing eligibility for other prescribed disability related Government schemes (such as MediSave Care, Home Caregiving Grant, Pioneer Disability Assistance Scheme etc.), for insureds’ convenience. This means that insureds can be automatically assessed for their eligibility for other Government schemes, without needing to go for another assessment or make another application. Individuals can opt out from the sharing of their health information with these Government schemes.

Confidential information on the insured e.g. address, bank account information can also be used for such other prescribed disability-related schemes, for the insureds’ convenience.
