Protection from birth

MediShield Life is a basic health insurance that helps to pay for large hospital bills and selected costly outpatient treatments, like dialysis and chemotherapy for cancer. It is designed for subsidised treatments in public hospitals. Starting from birth, all Singapore Citizen babies, including those with congenital and neonatal conditions, are automatically covered for life by MediShield Life.

Payment for MediShield Life Premiums

MediShield Life premiums may be fully paid from MediSave. Parents can tap on the Medisave Grant for Newborns to pay for their children’s MediShield Life premiums. Premium Subsidies are provided to the lower- to middle-income group. If you require further support to pay for your MediShield Life premiums, you can apply for an Additional Premium Support. You will not lose MediShield Life coverage due to financial difficulties.
