Gerald Giam on Building a Healthier SG

11:36 Min

Healthier SG is a welcome new initiative even though the focus on preventive healthcare has been advocated over the years, says MP Gerald Giam. Speaking in Parliament on Tuesday (Oct 4), he called for the annual MediSave withdrawal limit for chronic disease management to be lifted completely, especially for those over 60. He said this will encourage people who are at risk to see the doctor early and stay on their chronic disease management plan. He also stressed the need to closely monitor the targets and outcomes of Healthier SG so that adjustments can be made to better achieve them.
