NEW LIMITS ON INSURANCE COVERAGE AND MEDISAVE USAGE FOR CANCER DRUGS AND IMPACT ON DOCTORS’ TREATMENT DECISIONS

MP Gerald Giam

Mr Gerald Giam Yean Song asked the Minister for Health (a) whether the Ministry has assessed the extent to which the new limitations on insurance coverage and MediSave use for cancer drug treatments will impact doctors’ treatment decisions for their patients based on their clinical judgement; and (b) how will it affect patient care for those suffering from less common cancers.

Mr Ong Ye Kung: This question will be addressed in my reply to Dr Lim Wee Kiak and Mr Yip Hon Weng on 5 July 2022.
