MP Chia Shi-Lu proposes an independent panel to advise on new medical practices

MP for Tanjong Pagar GRC, Dr Chia Shi-Lu has proposed an independent panel to advise on new medical practices. 

The panel can make recommendations on the suitability of various treatments and the eligibility for reimbursement under MediShield Life. 

Speaking in Parliament on the debate of MediShield Life, Dr Chia, who's also the Chairman of the Government Parliamentary Committee for Health, says such a panel could evaluate the true efficacy and value of medical interventions from a best practice and cost-effective perspective. 

It could then decide on and inform Singaporeans about the treatments that truly make a difference.
