Zaqy Mohamad, Tan See Leng on ensuring no migrant worker is denied needed medical care(Updated: )
Employers must buy medical insurance for migrant workers and most of them also buy work injury insurance, which covers 95 per cent of hospital bills arising from non-work injury and work injury respectively. Zaqy Mohamad, Senior Minister of State for Manpower, said this in Parliament on Monday (Mar 8) in response to an MP's queries. Tan See Leng, Second Minister for Manpower, added that for the remaining 5 per cent, the Ministry of Manpower and the Ministry of Health have a special fund that is used to ensure that no one is denied the care that is needed.
