Koh Poh Koon on MediShield Life and Integrated Shield Plans(Updated: )
MediShield Life premiums are fully payable by MediSave, with no withdrawal limits. Family members can use their MediSave to help pay the premiums for their loved ones. The additional private insurance component of the Integrated Shield Plans (IP) is payable by MediSave, up to the Additional Withdrawal Limits (AWLs). Senior Minister of State for Health Koh Poh Koon said this in response to an MP's question in Parliament on Thursday (Oct 15). He said the AWLs strike a balance between helping Singaporeans pay for IP premiums using MediSave and ensuring enough MediSave for basic healthcare needs.
