*MediShield Life replaced MediShield from 1 Nov 2015, and offers:
MediShield Life is a basic health insurance, administered by the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board. It is designed to pay for large hospital bills and selected costly outpatient treatments, such as dialysis and chemotherapy for cancer.
MediShield Life coverage is sized for subsidised treatment in public hospitals. Those who choose to stay in a Class A/B1 ward or in a private hospital are also covered by MediShield Life. However, as MediShield Life payouts are pegged at Class B2/C wards, the MediShield Life payout will make up a small proportion of the bill. The patient may therefore need to pay more of his/her bill from Medisave and/or cash.
*Information extracted from the Ministry of Health website. For more information on MediShield Life benefits and claims, please visit the MOH MediShield Life web page.
Integrated Shield Plans (IPs) are made up of two components – MediShield Life and additional private insurance coverage providing additional benefits to cover Singaporeans who plan to stay in Class B1 wards or higher in public hospitals. MediShield Life is included in all IPs. If you have an IP, you are already covered by MediShield Life as it is a component of your IP and there is no duplicate coverage. The insurance company you have taken the plan with acts as your single point of contact. They will act on the CPF Board's behalf for premium collection and claims disbursement for the MediShield Life component of your Integrated Shield plan.
Here is a list of IPs available in Singapore:
