Members of the public can lodge their queries and discuss their views with other Singaporeans at the REACH MediShield Life microsite, which will include resources such as answers to frequently asked questions and videos and media articles on the scheme. Click here to visit the site.

REACH will also be organising face-to-face dialogue sessions, Facebook Chats and establishing “Listening Points” to gather feedback on MediShield Life, it said

Said Senior Minister of State for Health and Manpower and REACH Chairman Dr Amy Khor: “The Review Committee has released its full report and recommendations today (and) the Government has accepted

all the recommendations of the Committee on the design of the scheme.

“But the process does not stop here. We want to continue to engage the public and hear their views. I hope that Singaporeans will join the discussion on the recommendations and continue to share their feedback through the REACH MediShield Life microsite as this would help us in our policy implementation.”
