Chart of the Day: Two-thirds of Singapore's population covered by insurance programme

Thanks to rising affluence and an ageing population.

This chart from CIMB Research shows that about two-thirds of Singapore’s resident population today has integrated shield plan (IP) coverage, up from 43% in 2006.

According to the Ministry of Health (MOH), IP coverage grew at a steady 6% CAGR over 2006-15, possibly driven by rising affluence and an ageing population.

In 2014, the percentage of those still without insurance coverage hit 6%. The figure disappeared in 2015.

“We believe a better insured population will help support demand for private healthcare services,” CIMB said.
