Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for Health whether the Ministry will consider increasing the claim limit of MediShield Life for couples who experience serious pregnancy complications given that the last review was in 2019.
Mr Ong Ye Kung: MediShield Life limits for inpatient treatment of serious pregnancy and delivery-related complications are pegged to the prevailing normal and intensive care unit ward daily limits of $800 and $2,200 respectively. These limits were last reviewed and increased on 1 March 2021. MOH will continue to review the claim limits regularly to ensure that they provide adequate coverage.
