Why am I unable to undergo a severe disability assessment for CareShield Life/ElderShield/MediSave Care at a hospital?
While you are undergoing treatment in the hospital, your disability status may change, and this may impact your long-term care scheme application. As such, we do not recommend patients to attend the severe disability assessment while hospitalised.
Our focus is to accredit healthcare professionals in the community, including the GPs, and clinicians in the long-term care sector to assess individuals’ level of disability when their condition has stabilised.
