MOH enhances subsidy framework for medical implants

The ministry will implement the enhanced framework on 1 December.

The Ministry of Health introduced changes to its subsidy framework for implants.

Under the enhanced subsidy framework or the Implant Subsidy List, patients who meet the clinical criteria for implants will be eligible for higher subsidies.

With the Implant Subsidy List, implants are no longer automatically eligible for subsidy.

Implants under the list are fully registered with the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) and assessed by ACE to be clinically- and cost-effective for specific clinical indications.

MOH will introduce the list on 1 December.

The framework states that Singapore citizens will receive between 50% to 80% subsidy in class C/B2 wards and day surgery settings depending on their means-test level, with no overall dollar cap.

This is an upgrade from the current 50% subsidy capped at $1,000.

Meanwhile, Singapore permanent residents will receive between 25% to 50% subsidy in class C/B2 wards and day surgery settings, an upgrade from the current 25% subsidy capped at $500.

The public can view the clinical criteria of the implants on the MOH website: https://www.moh.gov.sg/healthcare-schemes-subsidies/implant-subsidy-list.

Patients with affordability concerns may approach Public Healthcare Institutions for financial assistance.
