Edwin Tong on easing criteria for CareShield Life claims(Updated: )
Would the Government allow pro-rated claims under CareShield Life for those who cannot perform one Activity of Daily Living (ADL), instead of waiting till they cannot perform three ADLs? This question was raised in Parliament on Monday (Sep 10) by MP Gan Thiam Poh. In response, Senior Minister of State for Health Edwin Tong said premiums would then have to be significantly higher. He said other options include buying supplementary coverage from private insurers or turning to Government assistance schemes.
