Schemes & Subsidies


Medisave is a national healthcare savings scheme. You and your immediate family members i.e. your spouse, children, parents or grandparents (For grandparents, they must be Singapore Citizens or Permanent Residents) can use Medisave to pay your hospitalisation bill and the approved outpatient treatments incurred at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.


Medishield is a catastrophic medical insurance that helps CPF members and their dependants meet the costs of treatment for serious illness or prolonged hospitalisation.

You need to inform the staff handling your admission that you wish to claim from Medishield. The hospital will submit the Medishield claim on your behalf to the CPF Board. After processing, the Board will pay directly to the hospital. The remaining amount which is not covered by Medishield may then be settled by patients either with Medisave or cash or both.

Private Medisave-approved Integrated Shield plans (PMI)

Apart from the MediShield scheme, there are other Medisave-approved Integrated Shield plans offered by private insurers. PMI is a scheme which allows CPF members to use their Medisave savings to buy Medisave-approved Integrated Shield Plans for themselves and their dependants.

Each insured person can only have one Medisave-approved Integrated Shield Plan paid with Medisave.
