Assoc Prof Jamus Jerome Lim asked the Minister for Health whether the Ministry is considering enhancements to the Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund to include mid-life servicing costs for devices not near its end-of-life period.
Mr Ong Ye Kung: The Seniors’ Mobility and Enabling Fund (SMF) was enhanced in February 2022 to provide seniors with subsidies for replacements when the current device reaches the end of its lifespan. For devices not reaching the end of its lifespan, SMF can also cover the replacements, or repairs if they are cost-effective, on a case-by-case basis.
