Govt incentives crucial for portable medical schemes: SNEF

In a statement, the federation acknowleges that the recommendations made by the MediShield Life Review Committee are a major breakthrough in resolving the three main impediments for both employers and employees to convert a company-bound medical benefit scheme to a portable one.
It says they would make medical costs more predictable for employers.
And workers would get better coverage when they happen to be in between jobs and after retirement.
